Acrylic painting The Sirens of Titan by Bernard Scanlan

The Sirens of Titan

Abstract paintings are more difficult to do than many realize. Oftentimes, they can look like a smeary mess or the color scheme does not come together as envisioned. My friend Eric, an excellent artist in Ypsilanti, Michigan, and I have discussed the intricacies of how abstract painting evolves on a canvas. Sometimes it's a crapshoot, whether the painting turns out to be something you feel good about. This is one I like; I enjoy looking at it. This painting has lots of texture, also. The title is from an early Vonnegut novel.
