Acrylic on 8" x 8" x 3/4" wrap canvas

Mini abstract painting with patchworks of soft colors on a textured surface.  I initial these small abstracts on the side in order to give them more versatility for displaying.  I rotate the images once they are photographed, which helps me in finding the strongest compositional direction.  The decision can often times be a difficult one in that there may be several different strong placements.  My decision is based on what I feel to be the best view.  With the initials on the side of these mini's, collectors have a choice in how to hang the artwork and an option in changing them later to refresh the display.  Also, they can be arranged in a group and rotated to create new interest.

another beauty. Like the idea of signing the side, it's a problem with abstracts because the design can work from so many sides!
