    New artist, looking for support for a third project: "Cain and Abel"

    Hi community! I'm a new artist and new to this forum, and hope I can find a family or a refuge here.

    I'm working up to beginning my next round of abstract paintings, in a new project, called "Cain and Abel." Please search the biblical story, and Dr. Jordan Peterson's YouTube lecture on this story for context.

    This project will focus on the polarities of being: existing in a metaphysical ‘hell’ or ‘heaven.’ My goal is to show how the juncture of these two states might be portrayed abstractly and as a painting. I will do this by representing each extreme separately, and as one. Some red marks will contain traces of blue paint, and some blue marks will contain traces of red paint. The idea is to show that, although they remain totally themselves at base, each color will rub off on one another at some point, to some degree.
    Red: Cadmium Red Medium (Series 9, Golden Heavy Body Acrylics)
    Blue: Anthraquinone Blue (Series 7, Golden Heavy Body Acrylics)

    I believe the following (crude) mock-ups show approximately how the canvas will look in the end. Each canvas will contain 2 columns. Of course, there will be room for experimentation and tweaking, so the end product might deviate from these sketches.

    Thank you,

    I know little about abstract art.
    But I do know that they follow the same design theory as every other great art.
