Abstract works in progress

These paintings are part of my new series of abstracts done in a square format. Travel plays a roll in this series -- referencing maps, aerial landscapes, nature and the figure. My goal with these paintings is to convey more immediacy and to not overwork them. I'm going for a looser quality with less detail and more focus on the larger shapes and textures. Right now I have about 17 paintings going at once.
