Abstract Painting

This is the first time I have tried painting an abstract.  I found it quite hard to do and need to learn more about how to go about it.  I used acrylic paint with some impasto medium to give it some body.

I'm reasonably happy with it.  I enjoyed layering various colours and creating several small areas with their own atmosphere.

My Garden





These are some photos of my garden in the spring.  I love to wander around and takes photos in the different seasons.  My front path has one of my favourite native plants - Prostanthera Ovalifolia which is purple.  Alpine Phlox are the ground covers.  Azaleas have been blooming beside my house for nearly 30 years.  Then there is a camellia, pansy, rhododendron, polyanthus and euphorbia.
