4 Abstract Drawings

Above are 4 Abstract Mixed media drawings. Derived from an intuitive process, with free flowing lines and acrylic colors, oil pastels and markers. They are entitled-

"Necessary Elements"
"Night & Day Shift"
"Non-Specific Object"

I'm reminded of a quote from Wassily Kandinsky, considered the originator of abstract art-"painting is an art, and art in general is not a mere purposeless creating of things that dissipate themselves in a void, but a power that has a purpose.... it is a language that speaks in its own unique way to the soul..." - Wassily Kandinsky, 1912.

Comparing mats

In choosing a color mat for your painting or drawing, it's wise to test a range of colors with the frame selected. Sometimes the mat can be harmonious to hues in the painting, or it can be a strong contrast or many believe it should be plain white, so that the focus remains on the artwork. For others a neutral color is best. What do you think?

Abstract art:The Rules have changed

Abstract artwork on paper. Each piece is like a personal visual diary. Instead of words, there are shapes and forms. Forms extending, overlapping, some in a parallel relationship to each other. Colors combine, confront and contrast against each other. It's a world of visual challenges. The rules of art has changed, the world is also changing fast... and furious. Abstract art can acomodate all thoughts and forms... even when the rules have changed.
