Avoiding the Obvious

Eurich, Richard Ernest, Low Tide, 1988

Eric Merrell, Big Sur, California

These two paintings verge on abstraction because they explore and accentuate elements of painting such as intensified/simplified colour, and pattern. It's not obvious at first glance that they are seascapes. The eye sometimes likes a puzzle to decipher, to be intrigued.
