Abstract Snippet Thoughts, by Kim Blair

(close-up snippet of larger work on 300 lb watercolour paper)

Some of these close-up photos of sections from my larger works have given me a knew perspective, making me think that I should consider creating larger abstracts works inspired by these smaller snippets.

Part of me wishes I could just wave my magic (brush) wand and the works would magically appear because as all artists know, if you tried to recreate a painting just like this snippet it would look forced and contrived.  The snippet can only be a jumping off point for something else to emerge...a totally new creation inspired by the original.
