Abstract Landscape #1

After all the sewing in my last piece, it's time to get back to some freeform painting! A couple of days ago I saw the call for artists for the Annual Small Works Invitational at Elon University, NC, in which you can enter up to 5 pieces. I only had one suitable piece - the 6 x 6 painting shown below, so I decided to paint 4 more to go along with it, to make a series of abstract landscapes. I'm to using the same palette and applying the dyes in pretty much the same way in all of them, just to see how different they will turn out even they're painted in very similar ways. The first one is above, 3 more to go!
