I enjoy painting in this style, abstract expressionism...it is a direct emotional responses to a thought or feeling I have.  The colour (particularly important for me), forms, and placement represent the response...this is my head and heart at work through art.  This painting communicates an intense period of love for me at the time.  Colour for me is my immediate mode for metacognition or intensity- and it it intensity of colour or juxtapositioning of colour which I use to represent that energy See Playing with complimentary and intense colours.

    Love your Happy Love. The colors are joyous and the shapes/lines project a feeling of belonging. Wonderful command of acrylics. I tried them, I failed at them. Hugs

      Thanks for your comments Wilma....acrylics are great to work with, depending on the effect you want to achieve, and how you can manipulate the drying times and blending. You need to try them again!!!! xx ingrid
