Still life abstracts

It has been such a long time since I lasat posted anything.  But of course I have been to Bhutan and am currently working on a photo book which I will post here eventually.  I have also returned to my Wednesday art group.  I finished the acrylic painting (red background)  that I began in Michael Winter's class just before I went away.  My last post included this unfinished, but here it is finished.  It was inspired by the work of Piet Mondrian with a mosaic background with straight lines.

I have now just finished another painting with a blue background.  The still life came from my head, not reality.  I used warm colours for the objects and cool colours for the background - more or less. I also added curved lines as they appealed to me.
