    This mixed media abstract is the product of an entirely spontaneous painting session. Sometimes it happens that I have no particular direction in mind. I start with a line or a blob in the middle of the canvas, and my muse seems to take over. At some point I catch the drift and figure out what's going on. The canvas was painted initially in one of Golden's neutral greys - probably the #6. The finished piece includes a bit of texture, crinoline material, to be specific which was applied with gel and then painted. With all the colourful lozenges and energetic lines in the painting ,the title was a logical choice.
