If you cross your eyes while looking at these pictures they are each very abstract!

Well, it's just because I love art history that I went googling to know more about 'abstract art'. My art history lessons are in the middle ages right now, so abstract hasn't been a subject yet.  ;D

I've learned, abstract art is a process, lots of abstract artists started with realistic work and that's what I seem to do right now.
I've painted the first 'message in a bottle, is expressive I think, nice, but absolutely not an abstract, so I've started my second one yesterday evening.

hmm, thought mine was rather abstract. ???   The bottle  was recognizable but the ocean, boat and sun were a bit abstract. Also the bottle was rather large.....not all that familiar with semi-abstract except what Dennis taught in the rooster lesson. :-\

Yeah, I agree...We need Dennis to tell us if we were semi-abstract or to much toward realism.

Post only your finished paintings. If you need help, post it in the encourager section.

It is much more difficult to make the 'vote for August challenge' when there are paintings in this topic which aren't real entries, I remember.

Excellent semi-abstract painting, Maria! Good job!!  :clap: :clap: :clap:

P.S. Mary Lou, I too would consider your painting semi-abstract. No worries.
Cheers,
Jani
