Today was the day that I decided to dabble in ABSTRACT. I had a blast!! Not sure how good the composition is on this but it was lots of fun - I started with a frame painted in Yellow Ochre but that didn't show at all so I changed it to black. . .
then spent time filling it in with lots of shapes in various colors of acrylic paint. Since I knew it was gonna be a total mess I didn't bother taking any pics at the beginning. . .
took this one before I added the black and white details - It was about at this point that I realized that I might end up liking this project after all.
It never ceases to amaze me how much change a little addition of black and white can make!
Of course, an abstract painting can be hung in any direction - not even sure why I thought it should be hung Landscape versus Portrait but this orientation looks "upside down" to both me and my husband compared to the picture at the beginning of this post.
