Today I tried some mini-abstracts with different combinations of media. Having so much fun with this. Not signed because they are still wet. On left is Abstract Sunset, 3" x 3 stretched box canvas." The one on the right is really three different pieces (each one untitled as yet).  They are 2" x 2" little heavy cardboard panels.  It was like making cake frosting.



Please let me know what you think.  If they dry and don't crack, I will tell you what I used.

You are certainly mastering this abstract Mea. The large top one is intriguing. Looks like shaving cream along the top layer.

Thanks, Bill.  I never thought I would "get" abstract," but I am loving it.

These are great Mea! In the top one I can see a raging forest fire, sadly quite representative of the fires blazing in both Canada and the US.
The bottom left has me thinking of looking down into a giant water spout.
Brilliant job on all of them!  :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

Thanks, Val.  They are quite small so I will set them on mini-easels and enter them in a miniature show.

Wonderful Mea, I see so much in these.  Bottom middle is a young girl running home at sunset.  Love how these prick your imagination!!!

Thanks, Mary Lou.  Yes, I see the girl.  My thought was a hula dancer.  Then I thought to title it - "Where are my slippahs!"

Abstract mania.  Painting on top is a sample I did for my senior citizen class. Left side is gesso/ink; right side is acrylic/ink.  Then I sanded it and painted it white. Poured inks, then painted it black.  Then added more inks (yellow, red, teal, white.)  Any thoughts?

(I should have photoed each stage! Actually, the white paint over the sanded texture was pretty cool.)




Had fun.
