Dabbling In Abstract Again



Remember when I mentioned wanting to paint all day last Wednesday? It didn't really happen. As in, it didn't happen at all. I ended up having an asthma attack, which hasn't happened in eleven years, and that pretty much took over the rest of my day. It's fine though, and I was feeling much better the next day, and I spent the rest of the week working on these bright pieces. Red is my go-to power color, so it was a no-brainer when I pulled out my palette. 

We finally had snow Friday, and it was beautiful. You'll see a few photos I took next week, probably, and it was so much fun. It was only a slight dusting of snow, but that's all it takes to lift my spirits. The red was even more fitting, because I was in the best mood. Seriously, nothing beats watching your dogs play in even the slightest bit of snow. What frozen face?

Anyway, I strayed from abstract paintings towards the end of last year. I was going through a slight burnout, and I was very much caught up in the holiday season. It's all I want to do right now though. It's an extremely cathartic process. I think I want to spend more time this year in this medium. This is a good start.

  1. Sounds awful with the asthma attack, but happy to hear that you're okey now! Not even kidding when I say that I used this exact same palette of colors this morning haha. Red/pink/purple and different shades of it. Did some fashion illustrations for a project and had a bit too much fun with the different shades, lol! Anyways, have a lovely week Amber! Xx

I know I've said a million times now that I enjoy your artwork, however this is 100% my favourite post to see from you. I adore abstract works and never more so when they have a whimsical feel to them; really looking forward to seeing more of your work in this medium!!

  8. I'm glad you were able to get back to painting and feeling better the next day. Also, colors are so magical. I love how each shade can make you feel something different. Also, I love abstract art, I'm just not that great at producing it myself. Yours are great by the way. :)
