Besides my five grandchildren’s visits, right now nothing gets me as excited as working on a piece of abstract painting. I’m too new to the process to call it art. I’m also a little self conscious to feel it is good for anyone who sees the pieces of work. Mostly I do the paintings and give them away. Some day I hope the creations hang where many can enjoy them. Right now I try and try again. I play with colours and tools and canvas. I read about it and I watch YouTube videos. No one is more surprised than me when a new technique works or a finished piece actually feels finished. Sometimes I know when I’ve done enough, but mostly I get back to a piece and do something differently the next day.
I’m just practising right now and someday I might actually like a piece enough to sell it, but that is not my goal. I just want to express myself and hope others enjoy and see something worthwhile in the pieces. As long as I’m enjoying the painting process I will continue to dabble in abstract art.
I hope you enjoy these pieces.
