Blue Chord

An abstract painting is like an improvised song. If you follow the imagery in this one, and allow yourself to just hear it, you may notice that it has a bit of bluesy electronica tango kind of thing. With a lot of interesting percussion. Some softer melodies, and some nerve jarring horn screeches... That's what makes painting abstracts so much fun, it really takes the effort out of creating. The knowledge of color and composition is already there, now it's time to play. An exercise in letting go of control, while still having it. Know that there will never be another moment like this one, and go with it.
