Thick and Thin Diptych

Painfully slowly over the last year, I have worked on these two paintings to try to experience the thickest and thinnest ways of working with paint. There are so many items you can put into acrylic paint, it is intimidating. This was one of my experiments. I did not use a brush except for very secondary touch ups. Palette knife and and dollar store sieve to throw the colour spots onto the canvas (look closely). I think the beauty of abstract art is when the layers are very present and create resonance and depth. I am still learning, my experiments are on the blunt side, but I hope to keep working at it. Size: both 20 by 28 inches
