My Abstract "Art"

I don't know whether or not to be serious in this post, but since this is how I started off it looks like I'm going for not serious.

My husband was out Saturday morning with a friend so I took some "me" time and did a little painting. As you know, I have been wanting to take a stab at abstract painting and I guess you could say the outcome was an "A" for effort. It didn't turn out that great but I enjoyed myself while doing it.. that's all that matters, right??

I took some pictures of the progression.

I should have stopped at this point. I liked the soft pink and drippies. But then I tried adding color.. eek.

In conclusion, I definitely won't be calling myself an artist, but it was a nice, relaxing Saturday morning with my paints, coffee and some Civil Wars.. I can't complain.

And I did end up hanging it in my office on this empty wall space next to my curtain closet "doors".

  2. I love taking the time to paint & relax! My "abstract art" never comes out to good either, but it's nice to take the time to try. I actually think your piece doesn't look too bad at all, you should definitely keep trying to make one that you love!

  5. I like it! Much better than the one I attempted a few weeks ago. Abstract is hard to do well! I enjoy doing it though. Great job!

    It looks MUCH easier than it is. I've tried several times... all with a big fat fail!

  8. Good for you! I think that's great that you took the time just for you and that you gave it a try. I think it looks great- the palette is so soothing. Way to go.

    I think it looks great for a first time! I am sure not every artist loves every creation, but keep at it and I am sure you will find a groove that works for you!

  13. So I am not so good with abstract art either...but I like it!  I have seen some that I like that are really loaded up and just laid one with the palette knife.  I am thinking of trying that sometime.  If you want to have a painting party let me know!
