The Grand Nature of Abstract Art

February 25th, 2015

The Grand Nature of Abstract Art

Abstract art lends itself to the senses of freedom and free expression. Boxing it in with the limits of the canvas is almost a disgrace. I can’t think of a better way to present this type of artwork to the viewer other than big and bright. You are probably aware that color is such a big part of abstract art, but equally is, well, being BIG. Without the artwork’s grand nature the color does not really transcend into the realm of the senses. And this is what abstract art is for me, art that has the ability to enter the senses on another level. I appreciate art that is both simple and complex; having just the right about of balance it is neither, and in-turn becomes art that can be enjoyed beyond thinking, classifying, and any other thing that our brains want to do to it. Abstract art of a grand nature is just there. It belongs. It is beauty. It moves you. You enjoy it. That’s what I want to create for you.

Buying Abstract Art From Living Artists

Contemporary abstract art paintings are the result of great imagination, energy, and creative expression that is being harnessed here and now. Buying these paintings is actually a great way to add life and energy to your home or place of work,  positively impacting your surroundings as a whole.  Abstract artists of our day are creating wonderful soulful expressions through the exploration of the imagination and the delving into new and mysterious creative processes.   By considering original abstract art from living artists it is important to know that you are helping the artist make a living. You are investing in their careers and giving them the nod to create more new and exciting work.  By hanging their artwork on your walls you are also sharing their work with all those who happen to see it.  Often times it is not vocally said by artists, but you the buyer, become a blessing in their lives.  You are connecting with them at a personal level, and are a vital part in the sharing experience of their artwork with the world.

About Abstract Art Digital Paintings

For me, abstract art represents the creative spirit and unseen energies that evoke curiosity and wonder.   Through the exploration of the imagination and the attempt to express the emotions, there is a special connecting moment that I love.  By embracing the computer as a medium to create abstract art I found that it allows me to create with full capability where I am one with intent and spontaneous adaption.  Although I am creating something new to the viewing eye, I hope there is a subtle familiarity and resonance in the feeling the art gives.   Each abstract art digital painting carries within it natural free flowing expression, with detail and subtle visual elements that allow for unique emotion and a particular reaction.   I recently received a comment from someone I didn't even know who put into simple words part of what I cam trying to convey in my abstract art. He said, "Love the vibrant colors...like an emotional energy flowing through a spiritual passage. Lets me feel free."

Create a Warm Energetic Space - Large Abstract With Frame

Do you have a visually cold room with a minimalist contemporary feel? I would recommend you change it up with a large contemporary artwork that has warm tones and compliments your color scheme. This piece is entitled "Come A Little Closer". The thick white frame (710WHT) and mat enhance the beauty of the art while also complimenting the white trim molding in the room. The colors dance up and down and include reds, blues, browns, greens, and golds. This abstract art piece has 12 vertical segments with warm color tones and fluid movement that is very inviting to the senses. This artwork is available as a print on paper, canvas art, metal art, and acrylic art. Canvas art sizes and paper prints are available as large as 72" x 48". The larger the size the better the intended feeling and color come across to the viewer. To purchase this piece Click Here

Divine Substance - Contemporary Setting

Divine Substance - Contemporary Setting

"Divine Substance" is a mixed media digital transformative painting. In the creation process of this painting I was searching for soothing colors that would glow and flow together with magic. The essence of flowers are in the forms and the colors. Like the flower of a fuchsia plant, there are pinks that turn to magenta and to plum. The blues vary from turquoise to cerulean. Maybe it’s just me but there is a fun whimsical quality and true beauty to this piece. In this contemporary setting picture you can really get a sense how this artwork can change the feeling in a space. You can purchase this canvas art as large as 96″ x 44″.

Gallery Canvas Print - Somebodys Smiling

Here are some pictures of “Somebody’s Smiling” - a 60″ x 30″ gallery canvas print. The artwork has been printed onto glossy canvas and was carried onto the sides. This is a good size and the orientation is such that it fits nicely above the couch, over a bed, fireplace, etc. “Somebody’s Smiling” was created through a unique technique and a combination of mediums – paint, photography, and digital manipulation. It is is uniquely expressive and jumps out at you in colorful waves of movement that make it both abstract and still distinctly floral. Click Here To Order "Somebody's Smiling" - Abstract Art Print

Abstract Flower Art - New Gallery Added

Abstract Flower Art - New Gallery Added

I find flowers a great inspiration. Their colors are magnificent and their graceful forms show the divine intelligence and beauty of the universe. I enjoy taking the inspiration of a flower and re-creating their sense of wonder through abstract art in my own way.

By interweaving abstract digital art, photo manipulation, and hand painted elements together I hope to present a truly unique type of artwork. For now I call this art a type of digital mixed media. As I explore the natural beauty of many types of flowers I desire to be somewhere in between abstract and reality when I compose the piece. Flowers offer endless possibilities and I hope to add many more abstract flower artworks to my gallery.

Recent Sale Luminous Abstract Art On Canvas

A recent sale of a 72" x 36" print of Luminous abstract art on canvas (gallery wrapped) went to a buyer from Santa Barbara, CA.  Other abstract canvas art gallery prints recently sold are a 48" x 16" canvas print of Passion, a 96" x 42" canvas print of Mother Earth, and a 60" x 26" canvas print of Essence.

It's a great pleasure to create these abstract art paintings and then have then be able to print and sell them in such a large beautiful format.  Printing these abstract art paintings on oversized gallery wrapped canvas is a very simple and eloquent form of presentation that allows you to experience the art.  The energy, the colors, and the layered abstract forms all come together to envelop you (the viewer).  If you are unaware my abstract canvas art is available in many sizes, custom made to your order.  The larger sizes, 6-8' are a more popular choice for my abstract art on canvas.  For more information visit my abstract art print gallery.

Why I Paint The Way I Do

 Why I Paint The Way I Do

I am a self-taught artist.  I experimented with the true belief that the more mistakes I put down on canvas the better the final painting would appear.  This seems to be true when you love the actual thickness of paint, the way it pours and overlaps after each layer is dried.  The end result is unique every time by pairing my own orchestration with that of the natural rhythm of matter.  If you feel some kind of joy in my paintings, this is probably because when I painted them I was feeling joy.

I sometimes ask myself, “Why do I paint the way I do?”  Really I just enjoy it.  But if I dig a little deeper I find that I paint because I am moved by something.  It could be that I am moved by the way water flows over rocks. Or I am moved by the music that overwhelms my soul.  I am seeking to be moved; to be inspired.  And inevitably, I want to then share and transpire this energy into art, which hopefully moves another.

The Other Side of The Brush

The Other Side of The Brush

I have always experimented when painting. It's boring to do the same thing over and over again. So I sponge, splash, pour, use my finger tips, and even remove paint. I love the actual thickness of paint, the way it pours and overlaps after each layer is dried. Brushes serve their purpose and use them even though I don't want to show brush strokes too often. But I go searching for that little bit of magic that I they just can't create, or maybe they can?

More often than not, I find that I use the opposite end of the brush to get the right flow of paint onto the canvas. The angle and length of the handle helps to determine the speed and amount of paint. It takes a bit of luck, this pairing my own orchestration with that of the natural flow and effect of the paint and water I work with. What I want in the end is a painting that has texture and a unique appearance all its own, as if it grew out of the canvas.
