My Abstract Painting Addiction

Painting original abstract art is addictive. The more I experiment using bold thick textured paint to create colorful modern abstracts the more I want to paint. Something good always comes out of my time spent painting and I always have a beautiful piece of art at the end of the day.
While painting I can start out stressed, but after an hour I’m in the right frame of mind. I can paint for several days and then I will put those finished abstracts away. Keeping my colorful modern paintings out of view for awhile help me in many ways. I can look at the paintings later with a fresh perspective and clearly see which canvases are finished and which need more work.
I think everyone can benefit from doing something they really enjoy just for themselves. I didn’t think of painting as a career at first, just as a form of stress relief. The feeling I get from painting stays with me and I can leave my frustrations behind in my studio.

The winter snow melts, but there is still a thin layer of ice encasing the new spring growth. As the sun grows warmer the ice breaks leaving winter behind.

Colorful Original Abstracts for Your Office

Hanging original abstract art paintings is a creative way to add bold color and fun texture to keep yourself focused, happy and centered at your work. Offices should be inspiring and comfortable, after all we are not machines and even the most dedicated worker needs to come up for air once in awhile.

After too many hours sitting at your desk, on the phone and typing on your computer do you feel drained as you stare at dull white walls all day long. Inspire yourself by creating an area you can work in. Look for small abstract wall hangings that won’t take up too much space, but will provide a colorful textured focal point. Modern contemporary abstracts are great timeless pieces for any office. Contemporary abstracts set the mood with color and texture and depending on the abstract painting you chose the subject matter can be interpreted to each viewer’s liking.

Have you noticed the places with the least amount of art, color and visual interest are offices and hospitals. They are the most removed from nature too. In these places we can feel more tension with the void of mood enhancing atmosphere, but this can changed with thoughtfully chosen decor and wall hangings.

It’s easier to be happy if you have colorful paintings and decor items like bold contemporary abstracts around you that can boost your mood, inspire creativity and enhance your performance. Enjoy your surroundings so you can leave your work at the office.

Abstract Art Painted in Bold and Soft Colors

I love painting my modern abstracts using bold colors and broad brush strokes, but I’ve also acquired a new pleasure for using softer colors such as pastels and yellows in my abstract art. The soft colors are a great contrast to highlight my favorite bold paint colors of bright red, vivid blue, lush green and deep purple. 

The more I experiment with color in abstract painting the more I discover new color combinations I like. I’ve also learned that bold happy colors can be sophisticated with the right combination of other colors in modern contemporary art and home decor.
One of the many reasons I love using so much color in my abstract art is that color can project strong emotion and influence how I feel. Blue is calming, red has energy and passion while yellow feels sunny and happy. I choose to use many of these colors together in each one of my abstract paintings making a blend of happy passion, serenity and bliss.
