New painting

Actually, it's not a new painting, but an earlier abstract that just didn't 'come off'.  More attention was needed I felt and as a result the subject changed direction slightly and the artwork turned into 'Landscape Evolution 2010' - the date has been included as Landscape Evolution is a title I have used before, albeit for a much smaller painting.
