One of the last paintings that I have reworked. In the paintings initial state it was truly a minimal piece akin to the work of Rothko. And, I think that's what really bothered me about it and it just didn't feel like it was saying anything except, "Look at my pretty colors". So I used that as a jumping point to totally rework this painting and created an amalgamated state of organics and textures. I added some red to liven things up a bit and got this composition that reminded me of new growth coming up from a cracked, yet solid foundation.

when I first saw this as a thumbnail I thought it looks like flowers on water or a marsh. but after reading your description of "new growth coming up from a cracked, yet solid foundation," I can see it as a sidewalk. 

After rainfall, a sidewalk filled with cracks will host a ton of new plant life. :)
