New Abstract Painting called Message in a Bottle

This abstract painting is 4 x 4 feet and I have hung it at NorthSole, a local shoe store in Bend, Oregon in a beautiful contemporary space. It looks fantastic, if I say so myself. I have six other paintings there but this one stands out and is what you notice first. The shoes they sell are very high quality and contemporary in style. I feel like my show is a good fit. I love working in this gestural style with many layers. I paint very fast laying down marks and strokes, then I begin layering over with more glazes.  I let lower layers peek through giving a sense of depth.
