An abstract oil on canvas piece - 2012

This is actually the very first piece of work I painted. Although perhaps not to everyone's taste it feels like it holds a lot of memories and a special place for me. I only started painting abstract work last year, prior to that I'd never picked up a paint brush in my life (well, that probably shows :D). I really only do these because I enjoy making them so much but I thought I would upload some of the work just to see what feedback I could get and thought perhaps it might compliment my photography as well.

An impressive composition, all the more so for being early experimentation. I myself have never painted anything ever but I do get the urge from time to time!

Thank you! :) Really appreciate you taking the time to comment! - I would strongly suggest that anyone who thinks they may enjoy it tries it! I really didn't think I would initially but it's something that I really enjoy now :)

You're most welcome; and I don't doubt that I will - one day, anyway. I even have access to the resources, when the time comes.

this reminds me of the edge of a storm and when you are at a distance you can see the line. the left being the calm water and sky and then the wall of water sheeting down into a choppy sea still showing the clouds as well.. least thats my perception of it.. its cool man:)
