My blog discusses a variety of ideas and methods of creating colorful art. I like to share new methods of painting or making interesting artistic pieces which I am always searching for. I enjoy using different mediums and painting various subjects as you can probably tell when looking at my website. Although I do not write a blog on a daily basis, I write my blog when I feel there is something interesting or new that other artists would like to know.

Realistic Abstracts

| 05 May, 2018 11:07

Realistic abstracts are contemporary abstract paintings that remind the viewer of a realistic setting or object.  Many people, when looking at an abstract painting, identify specific parts of the painting that look like a real object, scene or person.  I tend to paint these types of paintings, especially when painting scenes of Florida.  Such is the newest abstract that I recently finished. 

Called "Sky & Water", one can easily identify the general scene of Florida's billowy clouds, the water meeting the sky and the sea grasses often found in the shallow water near the shore.  Painted on a square canvas, this acrylic painting becomes more fun to look at day by day. The reflection of the sky on the water with its pink, and various hues of blue, tie it all together..
