Sleepwalking with Claude
Here's my latest piece. I don't have a title for it yet. I was attempting something more abstract than my usual landscapes. It does employ a horizon line to vaguely reference a place but beyond that, I wanted abstract - color, line and texture. I wasn't trying to convey any place in particular. So much for my detour into the abstract. In the middle of my design work, suddently I saw it. Another Monet emerged. I've done several Monet inspire pieces. Enough. But without even trying, with no thought of Giverny whatsoever, there it is. Yes, it is a more abstract treatment and I like how it turned out but it amazes me that I did this. It's like I'm sleepwalking with Claude.
a detour away takes me right back . . . going in circles
