    Better days have passed

    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... a nice step forward 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.
