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.
