Abstract Art

So, I actually started this post in December and never quite finished it. I've still been painting and crafting, but have failed to do any updating here. This afternoon while working on a sketch for Father's Day, I decided to finish up this post from months ago. I'm looking forward to seeing some of your artwork and have missed connecting with each of you online! Hope you and your families are doing well. :)

Since December, I've been working my way through various classes like the ones from the Art Bundle for Good, as well as watching great You Tube videos. I love learning new things from others! Last year, after watching Betty Krause create an amazing piece on You Tube, I was inspired to create my own abstract painting on a larger canvas. My canvas was one that had sat around a few years and I was just stuck on it. It was fun painting along with Betty on her video. I loved seeing her process and the various mediums she uses, from paint to colored pencils. The various mediums create interesting textures and a beautiful finished art piece.

Below are two close up views of the canvas: 

I am really happy with the final project and have plans to hang it above our fireplace. I just need to watch the final step in sealing my art, Betty's Varnishing Art on Paper Tutorial. I've never actually varnished or sprayed a final layer on any of my art projects. Mostly because I was too nervous that I would do something wrong and mess it up. I like the idea of doing some practice on paper pieces (which I have done recently and will share soon). Currently, I have sprayed this piece and just need to apply a liquid varnish and hang. I'm so excited to have something finished that can hang in my home. 

If this looks familiar, it's because I loved the colors so much that I made it my background wallpaper on the blog. :) :)
