How come?

In colour. Blue. 40x40cm (WIP, I think)
Soft pastel/acrylics on canvas


... that my abstracts are always ending up seascapes?

Don't have a clue!

This is in fact an abstract interior still life, in case anyone is asking.

And just to add to confusion: it's pastel on a 3D canvas, over pumice, gesso and acrylics. Oh, and its first incarnation, this hosted a rubbish landscape in oil from a few years ago.

I let it mature a bit and see if I can sort out the composition a bit more.

Oh the colours, the colours. Stunning. Funny how sometimes everything turns into a particular form of somehting huh?

How is it I can tell it's yours? You have a way of working the pastel which is all you own. I see so much in this abstract, I love it.
