Acrylic Abstract ! This Is It For Now

For now I feel a sense of completion with this one.  I'm going to set it aside and see if it talks to me.....




I seem to be on a roll....so started this one.  I'm officially calling it "throw everything at it and see what happens".......not a huge success (in my opinion, but what do I know?).  Tell me what you think.....

I love the colors & composition of the top one. The top one works because there is a definite flow of the image. But in the bottom one my eyes go to one specific point and stay there. I like everything else about the piece though: the color choices, the texture, the plant/leaf images on the left and the rows of lines on the right. I think it's just an issue of flow. Good luck!

I think elisa is onto something, it's a flow issue more than anything else because the colours & textures are wonderful. Perhaps if you could continue a little of your focal area down into the larger shape below, breaking up the dark line that outlines the shape and is probably working as a barrier to the eye traveling about the piece. Tricky stuff, I run into design issues all the time!
