A few years ago, I took an art class where I was required to create several paintings, the final one being an abstract work. I never thought I would like painting abstract art because of the fact it’s not about a pictoral representation, rather the use of color, brushstrokes and emotion.
Lately, I’ve imagined a large scale piece over our living room sofa, so I’ve been collecting inspirational images to remind myself how fabulous a large scale piece of abstract art looks over a mantel, couch, or console.
I’m really inspired by a few of these abstracts available from Grandinroad.
And a few more inspiring works available at Ballard . . .
So smitten am I by all of this large scale abstract art that I went and bought a large canvas last weekend, and did a brave thing ~ I started my own painting!
It’s only halfway done, but it’s coming along better than I expected !
What’s your opinion of abstract art? Love it? Hate it? Ever painted one yourself?
