Can’t see the forest for the trees. This little saying was my inspiration for the painting above. I’ve been wanting to try painting some abstracts, but really, abstracts confuse me. I’m more of a literal kind of girl, hence my first foray into abstract is a fairly literal interpretation. You know, green background = forest; black, lumpy tree shapes = the trees. Yep.
But then Roland came in and turned my world (erm, my painting) upside down. Do you see them? The dancers?
Going from a negative feeling to a positive, joyous feeling? I love it!
It just all depends on your perspective.
