Even though it is an abstract painting, I had taken an inspirational picture prior to making it. It makes it easier to do wise color as well as composition choices. (it didn't turn out that well anyways, and it ended up in the trash)
One of my very best friends from Madrid (and also from university) is coming to see me next week for my birthday. I'm so looking forward to it! She is also into painting and the second apartment we lived in together in Madrid, we decorated our rooms with our own paintings. I remember she made a gorgeous one of a Latinamerican salt desert.
