Hi gang! Sorry I been gone. I have been doing real watercolors (learning I should say) and working with willow charcoal as well.
Anyway tonight I started up ArtRage and did this Abstract. Tried out a method where you just start out with a very light, strictly abstract random pattern and take it from there. Paint whatever it's telling you to paint. Here it is, hope you like it.

very nice Neal... It still reflects your style overall but is a nice mix of impression and abstract.. great color and texture work...:cool::cool: a nice step forward I think.

Totally interesting, Jibes and i love it... one can walk, crawl, run in your pic...and there must be a lot of spiders as well at that place...i think...;)

Nice abstract; lots of motion but still provides places for the eyes to rest--excellent inclusion that lots of artists forget to include!

You've been missed.

This is one heck of a come back pic though! Really very cool exploring those early 20th century decades. Successful I'd say!

This is great, I don't see it as an abstract, it looks like a jumble of rooftops to me.

Neal, a great effect, it's kinda like looking down the street though a smeary window pane

It is as if a distant memory of a time, a place gone by is beginning
to surface in the recesses of one's mind. Expressively beautiful in
every respect. :D

This is a real masterpiece. You may find a top class style line joining, along the time, outstanding master painters like, at least, CÚzanne, Braque and Carlo CarrÓ! One of the best ever here!:eek::cool::):):):):)
