I find myself wanting to explain my paintings or critiquing them when the whole point of this project was not to do either of those things. I don't have much to say for these abstract paintings because I have commented on the process in previous posts nor was I wasn't trying to create any specific subject. I have just been "going with the flow" and seeing what kind of results that I get.

I really like the way this one turned out tonight. I see the Northern Lights taking the shape of horses. My son sees dragons and valleys. That's what I love about these "Rainbow Reflections" - everybody sees something different.

I am still keeping with the horse theme and the color scheme. By keeping the same colors it helps me to focus on the image that I am creating rather than worrying about how different colors are going to flow together and mix on the paper.
This is one of those paintings that I know what it is suppose to represent but I don't know whether other people will see the same things that I see. As I was painting this the title came to mind "Heads and Tails". Usually if you see horses standing together in a field they stand head to tail so that each horse's tail will flick the flies away from the other horse's head. That's what I see when I look at this picture.

This one didn't turn out the way I planned. It had potential but I just couldn't pull it off. I guess my head just wasn't in the game for painting today. It was a rough day at work and I came home to a sick child puking his guts out. Even as I write this entry he is laying on the floor int he bathroom moaning. I hate it when my boy is sick!
