This sketch is done as a starting point for one of my abstracts I call my, "swirlys" (not very high-toned, is it?) Doing the abstracts allows me more freedom of design, of expression and color. I enjoy drawing from my feelings about a woman or women in general and then using the lines surrounding her as a way of further expressing what I feel. Then, when painting I can add color to further inhance this emotion. There isn't anything revolutionary about all this, it is what most abstracts are meant to do. For me it just gives me a different place to go from my realism and the portraits I do.  This sketch is about 8 x 10 inches. Here she is a flower, perhaps a prairie flower. To me, women are delicate and beautiful as a flower but also as a flower on the prairie they are strong and can withstand what nature sends them.
