Another Day Of Painting

I have continued to paint my analytical painting which features Zoe, my Boxer. It has been slow to develop since the studio is particulary hot and humid during this time of the year in South Florida. In any event, I believe that the final product will be worth my efforts. Yesterday I mentioned the concept of anchor in my painting. An anchor is the predominant image within the composition that immediately draws your attention. It is the headline if you will. I find that one of the crucial elements, which is often lacking, in completely abstract paintings, is the anchoring element. Indeed, one of the reasons that I have added realist imagery into the abstract framework of my paintings, is to create an immediate interest above and beyond the purely decorative. Jamie R Morhaim
