All I Ever Want

All I Ever Want

I love doing these paintings; my "abstract reflections". I think I am finished- I went to the studio yesterday afternoon and put on a few finishing strokes and I now am loving it. All I ever want is to make a painting that you can get lost in; one that you can look at for ages and never feel tired. As I was deciding if this painting was finished I kept finding areas that I loved, that are almost abstract paintings in their own right. I realized that if I kept painting I might lose them, so I put the brush down. I hope you enjoy looking at it and over the next couple of days I will post details of my favorite areas.

A quick announcement... My painting "Ripple Effect" (a smaller, different take on "All I Ever Want") has been juried into an upcoming show at AyrSpace in Ontario!

This is a real stunner, Nicki. I'm blown away. And no wonder Ripple Effect was chosen! Congratulations.
