Abstract Painting, Fire in the Sky I, by Canadian Artist Kim Blair

Fire in the Sky I
12x12 oil on gallery profile canvas

I have been working with some tin-foil reflections from past reference photos; selecting various sections, then cropping them to create some ' jumping off points ' of inspiration for a few abstract paintings.
Abstract paintings may look easy to execute, but believe me they are not.  An artist still needs inspiration... a 'spark' to ignite creativity in order to pick up the brush... plus thoughts about composition, shape, line, color and texture.

Love this. Its gorgeous. Yes, wouldn't it be nice if abstract was simply standing back and throwing paint on the canvas. (although, I'm sure thats done too.)
