This one started with a concept, sort of like the one two days ago. Both used that Plaster of Paris gauze before the texture medium went on. Still not sure...

8x8", acrylic and mixed media on board
It's interesting to case back and remember what was going on when I painted this. I know that doing the twenty-five paintings for the show took a lot of time and effort. And that sometimes I just needed to come up with a title that seemed apropos. For this one, it was the grid pattern that looked like tire tracks that gave it the title.

I can't believe it's been almost three months since I posted. It's the standard excuses: Life happened. It's good stuff: some contract work, traveling, a bit of house remodeling. But it's time to come back.
I went into this piece with an idea in mind. The outcome is kind of different from the ones where I just go into reactive mode and see what happens. And, of course, months later, I see it as almost figurative. This is one of the fun things that happens with abstract art: People want to see recognizable things in it, so their eyes find them. In this case, I see someone standing under a tree, and I can see his shadow.
