Hi Guys,
Here is a painting I completed 15 minutes ago, in acrylic on canvas, 6" x 6."
I want to work on more nonobjective pieces in future.
There are some elements about this piece that I like and some that I dislike. I hope to improve in future. ;)

All of your comments both pos and/or neg are welcomed.

Nina, what is it that you don't like about it?

I don't see anything that is glaringly bad. In fact I have looked at it a couple of times and I am rather intrigued by it.

I like it... and I'm also curious to hear what it is that you don't like about your painting.
In the past, I've never been a big fan of abstract paintings, but I'm beginning to like them more and more. Especially as decorative or design elements - they can bring out a lot in a room, for instance.

It's very cool! Keep it up!

I'm curious to know what you don't like too! I think this is neat. The colors are soothing and the swirl is fun to look at. Thanks for sharing - nice job!

Nina, I think this is lovely, but I wonder how it would look if you softened some of the hard lines like you have with the central white going into the pink.

Hi Carol, Paul, Ursus, Angie and Jo,

Thanks so much for your feedback, which I appreciate alot!!!
:)

I spent alot of time on this painting already, changing the composition many times; I have lost patience with it, at this point. ;)

My critique of it is that it doesn't have as much depth as I would like it to have; the lines are not varied enough in the thickness and thiness of them; and their isn't enough variation in shapes.

I hope to improve in my next nonobjective piece.
:)

I see portal, antechamber and conception.

Hey, it's late. I just responded to another thread that left me with a certain mindset. I'm tired, and slow to change gears.

So sue me.

I, too, thought of conception right off the bat. I see a child in the womb. Gives a very comforting feeling, in my opinion :)

I like the swirls of colors. Nice for a small piece, would make me dizzy if large.

Nina: I like the way the swirling leads the eye directly to the center to then contemplate the entire ptg! :)

Nina--I can certainly see your style in this one. I do like the swirl too. I saw a flower seed hiding in the depth of the petals. Birth again--Keep going on this theme you will be able to add the changes you want in the next one. An nice move to another step in your creative life.
