It's sunny and 75 degrees F here with a light sea breeze so suck on that you snowbird. Hee hee hee.
I'll be crying the blues for fair in a couple of months when it's 95 degrees with 98% relative humidity. Too bad there's no fM "emoticon" for SWEAT.

I WANT to SURF!!!!!
No honestly wow you wouldnt be able to keep me indoors if the weather was like that, which is why I am fed up with the UK and its cold wet days. We hardly ever have a Summer here now, not like we used to in the past.
You know Carson, in the 1970's, summer, or at least the warm weather began for us in April and lasted til October, with the sun hot enough that it used to melt the surface of the roads. Not now.... Long gone sadly...
Best of luck
Wow!!! The ripples in the painting mesmerize me. I think it is a compliment to you to say it is realistic. To me it does not matter if you first saw it, imagined it, or photographed it to find your "subject". The bottom line is awesome talent!!!
The first thing I do when painting an abstract is pick my colors. I have recently gotten into drip painting (or action painting) and my process for this is fairly simple. For me, drip painting is about the art of creating art so what I do is pick a color and paint the background that color. For example I recently did one (I wish I had pics) where I picked yellow for the background. I painted the yellow then just took a moment or two looking at it and pulling emotion from it. When I decided how the color made me feel, I picked more colors (in this case, green and a lighter yellow) and transformed those emotions into motion while dripping the paint.
I haven't been able to get a better picture yet, but here's the final product:
my goal was to illustrate the nervous and excited energy the I associated the yellow with.
If I had a camera, I would always take pics of my works in progress but as it is I have to borrow one from a friend to be able to get pictures so I'm usually not able to document the process of my work.
