Abstract Series - Olympia’s GrapesSecond abstract for art class in two weeks. This exercise was to take a black or neutral background, and use different tools, like the open neck of a bottle, textured cardboard, tape and palette knife to create a painting.  I realized after I finished that, in an odd way, it had some Olympic Games symbology with the iconic circles intertwined – all jumbled up seemed apropo for 2008. The painting also looks like a big bunch of grapes :0)
