Non-Objective

I've been working non-objectively (abstractly) for a few months now. It's hard (has to come entirely out of my head and/or gut) but fun. Generally I do these with mixed media: collage, acrylic paint and inks, drawing, gesso . . . whatever seems to work. It's awfully difficult to know when one is finished, though. I usually paint (or glue or draw) then prop it up for a while until it tells me what to do next, fiddle, prop, etc.
Sometimes they feel finished but I'm never entirely sure. Anyway, here are three paintings in the prop phase waiting for inspiration. Critiques? Suggestions?

Hi, Jane,
Very beautiful and interesting works. Crefully scattered pieces show unity in well organized compositions. Colours are so eye catchy. In my eyes, they all originally come from nature such as flowers & trees. Thank you for sharing precious work! I always learn lot from you!
Kind regards, Sadami

The ghd uk is definitely the best that you can get anywhere in the world. Best Ghd Hair Straightener Not only have ladies all over the world fallen in love with them but even professional hairdressers the world over just cannot do without them. So much so you find that the hairdressers from the previous generation are saying that the modern generation of professional hairdressers is not remembering the art of blow drying. And why you may ask. Simply for the reason that this Ghd Australia beauty product is so good!You must be dying to find out more about why everyone is ranting and raving about the Ghd Australia and more so the New Hair Straighteners.

Jane...I especially like the tree one in the middle painting against the non-objective background. That one really works for me.

My fav watercolorist is Carl Purcell and he most often adds dashes of a pretty blue...Horizon Blue by Holbein in his paintings to add interest, which is what I see in this painting, also. That color is very much like the color you have added in the tree painting.
