View Full Version : 2020 - New Approach to Abstract

01-01-2020, 08:17 PM
I am forever evolving as an artist and the past year has been a learning curve for me with new materials..new approaches to beginning a painting...as well as the outcome. Another move...new home...full time job...all have hindered my creative time at the easel. But this year...a new start...would love to hear any comments. Thanks everyone!http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/01-Jan-2020/306861-DSCN2168.JPG

Very pleasant to look at, gives a warm feeling - sort of a fairy tale feeling to it with hidden messages.

I wish you more time at the easel in the coming year!

This piece is talking to me... It looks like a small overview of a little Italian town.... Maybe Pisa, and it is the Leaning tower youŽll see on the top right corner.... NICE !!!!!!! :-D :-D

Love this one!

Thanks everyone for your kind words. I love that Kenneth sees a little Italian town! I feel that the viewer should connect to a painting with their own interpretation. And Trier...there are some hidden messages :*)

By explaining what I "see" in the painting I only reveal more about me and nothing about the painting. Each person sees abstracts through the filters of their lives. My experiences tell me a story contained in this rather Italian tuscany sort of pallet. Earthquakes came to mind as suggested by so many fragments. Or perhaps the story of a family's lives.

it matters not what I think, because this is pleasing to the eyes just as an Abstract with multiple shapes and well-balanced colors. Very pleasing.

Great to see you posting here again, Carly. I've always admired your work. I love the textures in this especially, and the colors are most pleasing. It feels very abstract to me. I particularly like the circular design in the upper right and only wish it were more central to the painting.

I like your use of chunky shapes. It looks almost like collage in some places.

Love this, but I can explain why perheaps the use of colors...

Very cool. Lots of things to consider and let your mind wander.
