New Abstract Painting – A Work in Progress

abstract paintingHere’s a little sneak peek of my newest abstract painting – Serpent. It’s still a work in progress and while I know the general direction I’m going with it I’m still waiting for a bit more inspiration. That usually happens when I’m sitting at my painting table and working. I find that I can’t wait for inspiration to strike, I just have to sit down and work at it. Abstract painting is different from realism in that way.

Loosen Up – Smaller Abstract Works

In an effort to loosen up my painting style I’ve decided to do a series of small abstract works and post them each day. Here’s the first! I was originally going to use modeling paste only to find out it had dried up in the container and the art store was closed! Luckily I’ve been repainting my house and had some spackling paste handy. It actually worked better than modeling paste!

This little painting measures 4×5 inches and it’s up in my Etsy shop. I plan on listing these little artworks for just $10 so if you see something you like scoop it up!
