The second 24" x 24" original acrylic abstract in the ocean forest series. I am loving the colour scheme/palette I use here. Who would have thought that visually pungent colour phthalo blue could be so beautiful mixed with earth tones?!

Break Out - Bust Loose!

24" x 24" Acrylic Abstract #1 in the series "Sea Forest" by
artist Gwen Duda 2012.
Let's just say I've had enough with realism and commissions and all that and it's time to bust loose! This painting is DEFINITELY the result of having to be contained for too long and too tightly. Frankly, I feel like my creativity has been held hostage and now, I'm letting it free. Throwing off the yoke of demands from others and just letting it surge forth through me, unrestrained, like a horse held too long in a tight stall and finally someone opened the gate. That energy just had to be allowed to bust loose!

What if you could just let yourself, bust loose, even a tiny bit?
