I've got a dilemma I'd love you to help me solve.
Today's artwork is Part I of what I intend to be a two part series of posts featuring my latest acrylic, semi-abstract painting as the star attraction.
This painting actually started out as an abstract in Ms Kathy's art class last week. I happily slapped paint on here, stroked there and stippled with my paintbrush for a couple of hours, when a couple of my clever suddenly classmates noticed that it kinda looked like I had actually painted a picture of waves breaking on the ocean. I looked, and by jimminy, it actually does. Go figure. They then got all creative on me and said the top left hand corner looked like a fire in the distance. Wowsers - they were on a creative roll! :-)
So now I'm confused. I'm starting to consider that perhaps this painting isn't an abstract afterall - maybe it has morphed into a sort of impressionistic landscape? What do you think? Abstract or Landscape? Here, have a look:
|Am I an Abstract or a Landscape?|
So what do you think will do the painting most justice - return it to its original state of being an abstract painting or work with the "impressionist landscape" idea? Thoughts anyone? Please advise - for once I'm really stuck and am unsure of which direction to take.
Regardless, I refuse to give up on this painting - nothing should ever be too hard, I say!
