Abstracts

Like many artists, I sometimes find that I need to experiment, or to loosen up. The following Abstracts are among those which  were created in moments (sometimes days, or weeks) when the need to experiment bubbled up.  It is also a passion to create Abstracts that that speak to the viewer in a manner which they may create their own story from the setting that I envisioned.
