Tempura on paper. I really like this one, but I'm guessing no one else will.

Thank you, and it led me to look at yours, and I especially like blown flowers and turquoise swirls.

This one really caught my eye Michael, I actually think it is quite impressive and makes a bold statement. On the wall in a house, I can imagine this would be the perfect painting for exactly the right room !! A decorators dream find !!!

Thank you very much, I really like this one myself but expected that no one else would, because it's so dark. You've encouraged me to trust myself more.

See you went from light to dark with this one Michael,..equally this one has character and maybe a touch of mystery!....i see angels floating around too!....best regards..Michael

Great comment, I hadn't thought of the angels floating around, that's why I like abstracts, they encourage the imagination of the viewers, for that reason I usually don't give titles.

Love the bright colours on the dark background, reminds me of winter and I love winter, cold but cosy..if that makes sense..like having cold weather but being able to put on warm coats, boots, hats and scarves.

Great comment, I didn't think of the winter connection but you're right, it's very cold here now and that very likely affected me (cold for southern California that is).

You are right Michael, this one is really good! I like those sinister looking characters I could see coming out from this mysterious darkness.

Wow, that's so encouraging, I hesitated for quite a while putting this one on the site because I really didn't think anyone would appreciate it.

Wonderful colors that play with the eye against a deep black mysterious background. A very successful abstract!

Thank you very much, that encourages me to try things that I think might be too different.

I tend to like both darker painting backgrounds and many of the Old Masters painted dark backgrounds.
I like the looseness of this painting.
Kind Regards

I wonder where are you these days? I finally had enough guts to use more black like you.

I'm delighted that I encouraged you to try more black because yours is super, I left a comment over on that one. I go in bursts of painting but have been quiet for a while, maybe I'm due again.
