Changing Seasons, finally finished!

Changing Seasons,  22x15" acrylic on paper
©Helen Read, 2014
Ready to mat and frame

This abstract painting has been long in its production!  It is finally finished.  I've tried to portray the changing of seasons simply through color and pattern.  There is a suggestion of a quilt below the surface.  I arranged my empty canvas in squares before I began.  I included certain smaller squares throughout that are intended to draw the eye through the composition.  There are small passages that include some metallics.  My intention in this piece is to provide an overall "feel" to the piece while giving the view many areas to look at more intently.  I also hope it provides a sense of change that we experience as we move from the abundance of color and growth to the sparsity of a season of rest and quiet.  

For more information on the purchase of this piece, please email me.

Hi Helen, We are awaiting Spring in Ohio too! We saw our first robin last week. There is hope!

I like the way your abstract turned out. I think you have accomplished your goals. Very nice.
