Determined to create a nonobjective painting, I began to layer colors.  Working from transparent darks to opaque mid tones and then lights, I concentrated on my edges, trying to have hard, soft and lost and found edges.  I thought about warms and cools and the sizes of my shapes.  After all these considerations, I realized that this piece wasn't as abstract as I originally intended.  It is another floral painting.  I love the surprise of the wildflowers along the highways in Texas.  This painting is My  Surprise, and it is 20" x 20'" on gallery wrapped canvas.
