This abstract is one where I really used line and sharper shapes other than the organic ones I tend to sway towards. I have a great love and respect for the abstract painters of California (Diebenkorn, David Park, Wayne Thibeau) and my husbands grandfather, a great abstract painter from Virginia, Charles Smith. We don't have the California work scattered around my house but we do have quite a few Smith paintings and this piece had to have been influenced by them. He was a MUCH more reigned in colorist than I am but his shapes and approach is what I consider to be pure abstract and his heyday was before that was vogue, 1930's not 1960's. I don't think any painter can not be affected by what they see and I have noticed over the years how even when I don't attempt it on purpose, I start to pick up the feel of the works I admire the most. This work is thickly painted and many of the ribbons of color running through it are pure, unmixed hues that give it a shimmering quality.
