Day 8,Acrylics, The Climb

30 in 30 hosted by Leslie Saeta.

I continued to work with the modeling paste trying to figure out how I want to use it. Today I worked on an abstract landscape after coming back from hanging works at Emerson House with two other artists. I felt inspired by their work.

The Climb
12 x 12

I saw this as a mountain landscape. Thinking that it needed something, I added the red. I like it on the left but feel I overdid it in the center and also feel that signing my name in red was a bit much, maybe purple? I hope to come back to this after living with it for awhile and making a few changes. But as for the 30 in 30 onward and upward.
