Abstract qualities

Often while I paint, I focus almost completely on abstract qualities.  That was the case with this painting. Broken impressionistic color, brush energy, thick vs thin paint, pattern, design, and dark vs. light passages.

Color and shape studies.

July 2015 sky

 Last night the sun set as huge thunder heads pasted thru dumping rain, and creating spectacular color, and light. Recently I purchased a new camera, upgrading my photo skills.  I'm still learning the settings and functions, but so far I'm pleased with the results.

 The color and light changed and intensified so dramatically.  The above photo and the 2 below are only about 10 minutes apart.
