wow I'm loving this reminds me of sliding down a wet cliff. thanks for sharing I just love seeing post with pictures!:clap:
Abstracts hold my attention much more then any other form of art because you get to see in them what you want most of the time. It's totally free no rules to follow. Do you feel that sense of freedom when your working on something like this? :)

I find it worrying that bug knows what it's like to slide down a wet cliff! :D I mean, I know what it's like but figured I was the only silly person who went hiking on her own.

The idea of using pastels wet is interesting... might try it.

LOL My butt and head have both gotten me in trouble over the years, yet, foolish girl that I am I have purposely slid down cliffs in the rain just for the rush. Ummmmmmmmmmm now what does that say about me? :evil: My thrill seeking days of that sort are over now though :(

Yes, I do find freedom in abstract. I didn't come to that phase in my work until about 5 yrs ago. I had a prof that head butted me over and over until I got so PO'd one day I just started slamming paint on the canvas. The next thing I knew she was running across the room, and yelling at me that I had been holding out on her...........lmao She was about 5' tall and tiny as could be, and in her 60's. I was 5'8" at the time and 40.........lol That little lady had spunk!

Energy but not apart from the form.

They require input from the viewer; energy. They are interactive in a way that a representational piece cannot be.

I disagree ... how many times have you looked at a figurative piece and wondered "what are they thinking?" same interaction, IMUO.

Perhaps abstracts are free from cultural symbols, as a representational piece can't be ... but most abstracts artists whom I read the writings of say exactly the opposite ...

(illustration:
Purple is universally a symbol for nobility.
Squares are a cultural symbol for unyeilding.
etc. etc.)

usually the artists have much more colorful metaphors than me, and personal, but they are still expecting the viewer to glean the message based on the context of line, shape and color- which is the same rule for figurative ! hmmnn.

guess it's up to each person to decide for themselves lol :D
