Castles Of The Mind

Here's a photo of my most recent painting called Castles Of The Mind. It was originally about order forming spontaneously from chaos and was an improvised swirl of paint that led to a square. The swirl was "automatically" pushed and pulled into cloudy castle shapes. The painting is in oil on a coarse canvas board. The blue ground is thinned acrylic that was sponged on.

Bit of a departure for you Mark. Looks like you are letting go of your control on this one. I like.

Thank you! Yes I do sometimes just get a board and "have fun" with the paint like normal artists do!
