My Attempts at Abstract Art

Dandelion Abstraction Number One  
by Michael Squier

This painting was created in an abstract class that my wife Rita was teaching.  I really enjoyed the freedom of not being restricted to any reality or pre-described lines.  The only true restriction was to shape the dandelion heads round.  This was done with masking fluid,  the rest is just wet color and creativity.  The size is 11" x 15" on 140 lb. watercolor paper.

This painting is for sale in my Etsy shop:

This is really nice - I especially like the black shapes in the background.
