A Favorite

Acrylic and prismacolor pencil on watercolor paper 9 x 12 -- I did this back in 2005 and it has been an inspiration to me since.
When I create an abstract painting I make an effort not to make it look like anything. Everyone will see something in it. Like a large but busy pattern on a floor or wall and when you stare at it you make images appear. Your mind wants to always see something it can make sense out of.


  1. if you click on the image you can see a "very" close-up.

  2. This is great Ralf. I would call it "Campfire With Bird" You Rock!
