Finishing Last Section of New Abstract Painting

By Abstractartbylt @artbylt

After working on this new painting in sections (see previous posts) over the last week, I wasn't sure how it would all hold together when I finished the last piece.  In each section I used the same colors in the same order and attempted to be both consistent and spontaneous.  I wanted this painting to have the dynamic energy that comes from a free hand. 

Here's how it ended up:

Ew3new-7500
40" x 60" acrylic on canvas.

Does it hold together?  What do you think?
