Andy, I very much enjoy your non-objective work. I especially enjoy the one over the fireplace, the one over the single chair, and the one over two chairs as well as Streetslaredox (interesting title by the way). I too paint a lot of non-objective paintings in acrylics as well as abstract and some more representational. I was a watercolorist for many years and got tired of chasing a "standard" in which to achieve quality watercolors. I got close but was never able to hit the jackpot. A few years ago I soon discovered that when working in acrylics there was no standard at which to achieve to claim my place in the media. I am free to paint whatever I want and how ever I want to. Usually painting in acrylics is less stressful. And I can paint to make the work look good instead of looking right. Of course there is the issue of finding buyers for my paintings that often times have no subject matter to recognize. Are you finding a market for your work? Currently I am the largest collector of my work with occasional sales! At my age, however, money is not my motivation to paint otherwise my wife and I would be in the food lines.
