My best attempt at abstract art: Interesting crops from a bad watercolor, digitized, visualized, recolored, and transferred to canvas.
Flickr contacts can see more detailed images for piece 1, piece 2, and piece 3.

I like it. In fact, I like it better with the new red color-shift and the texturing that has shown up (is that a result of the transfer process or something else, like scaling it up?). I might choose a different ordering though, like perhaps 3 1 2 (putting the rightmost one on the left and shifting the other two over).
Yes, the texture you see now in the finished pieces is the grain of watercolor paper, which in these pieces has been scaled up about 400%.
Joey’s also struggling with the order. Like you, he doesn’t like the third piece at the end of the tryptic. Design-wise, I understand your observations: The diagonal shapes take your eye up right, out of the tryptic. I’ll need to reconsider… I’m also trying to keep some continuity in colors.

So beautiful. Love the richness of color. Very sensual and suggestive. It could look like a hundred things. A waterfall, a suggestion of passion, red rocks in sunset…
