Birth of an Idea 4"x4" oil

Doing these abstract pieces helps me discover what shapes and colors are most appealing to me.  When my husband and I bought our first house in VT we later talked about what really appealed to us about the house.  I said the huge window in the kitchen that looked out on our (to be) magical garden.  He said he loved the perfectly square bushes in the front.  As soon as we moved in I bonsai-ed the bushes, not knowing how much those geometric edges meant to him.  He is an engineer (nough said).
