|Beth Meadows Pool IV acrylic on canvas 16x20" 2012|
I feel like this painting was an accident, but that may not be accurate.
I guess what I mean is that I didn't have a vision of this at all when I began painting it. I'm happy with the outcome because it's rare that I wander far from representational work. This painting goes in a direction I've been fantasizing about going in (toward abstraction), but it's going to have to be an accident if it's going to happen at all. I don't think I could do this on purpose and it be successful, at least right now.
