Incandescant

Today's painting is an abstract that was inspired by the shadows on the ceiling as we watched the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games !
I quickly sketched the pattern and returned to the sketch later to make this painting. 

I didn't want to paint the picture in shadow colours, so instead I took the bright, cheerful and uplifting reds, oranges and yellows.

I hope you enjoy it.

  7. Thanks, Judy. It does have Olympic flame in it, but more too, I think. I see birds on a wire too!

  15. Pat - how creative you are - I love the colors you chose as well as the abstract composition. You inspired me to think a bit more out of the box. Thanks for sharing.

  16. Hi Pat,
    I love your abstract.. It is a very happy painting. When I first saw it, it reminded me of birds sitting in a row.
    I have only painted one abstract in all my years of painting..
    Thank you so much for your comment on my horse painting.. I really appreciate it.
    fondly,
    Penny
