Daily Painters of Pennsylvania Challenge Painting for June/July 2013 "Abstracts Puzzle Me" by Mary Beth Brath

Abstracts Puzzle Me by Mary Beth Brath
5x7" Holbein Aqua Oils
Ahhh Yes - another wonderful DPP Challenge.  I have created a few abstracts that I have not shown to the public.  When I was about 3/4 of the way through this painting, I realised I have a very cohesive group of work coming together. Flips me out!  It was not forced. It was not planned.  Incredible.  When the body of work is ready to show, I will have an exhibit.
The background on this painting was applied with a brush.  The rest of the paint was thickly dabbed and laid on with a brush much like a little tiny sponge and toothpicks...keep in mind it is only 5x7".

I hope to try another abstract before the challenge ends.
