Abstract Paintings Inspire A Happy Attitude

With colorful abstract art your home decorating style can be fun and still be contemporary and modern. If you’ve taken your decorating too seriously in the past and nobody is ever quite at ease in your home try fun bold paintings for a change and feel happy in your living space. 
 

People communicate many things without words, use fun abstract wall hangings to make your home more visually welcoming and memorable. Experiment in your living area with boldly colored abstracts that have thick textures and quirky themes. For instance purchase abstracts that seem to tell an interesting story when you spend some time viewing them, these are the paintings that will give you and everyone around you a cheerful lift.
 
When I visit friends and see original abstract paintings with bold bright colors, thick textures and vibrant brush movement across the canvas hanging on their walls I feel instantly happy. Now when your guests walk into a room your fun abstract wall hangings will set the tone for them to be happy and at ease in your home and with you.

Painting Abstract Art and Being Open to the Creative Process

Leaving abstract paintings unfinished for days doesn’t annoy me anymore, it’s a creative tool I use. Taking a break from painting my bold contemporary abstracts lets my unconscious mind take over the creative process.
 

When I get back to my painted contemporary art in progress I’m ready with new ideas like adding more color and bold texture where needed. So if I can’t finish one of my modern abstract canvases in a day even after taking a short break I leave it be. Then next time I’m painting in the studio I will finish the abstracts from earlier painting sessions that needed more thought.

I never approached painting abstracts this way before, but it feels great not to force the creative process. I get some of my best paintings this way. In the past I would never leave a piece of abstract art half finished, but my approach was not conducive to creating great contemporary works of art that showed my true ability. Now I’m constantly in the process of starting new paintings while finishing other colorful paintings.

Paint Abstract Art Without Judgement and Stay Open to Creativity

Original innovative abstract paintings happen for me when I’m happy and open to the creative process. Recently I painted a contemporary art piece that just wasn’t going the way I planned, but after a short break, my colorful abstract painting style came together better than I expected.
 
 
I see now that it’s important to take creative breaks to get a fresh perspective on my original modern wall hangings. So when I create new works of art I take small breaks for lunch, or run errands. For instance I allow myself to stop painting if I can’t decide if I should add more contrasting colors to a bold new painting, change brushes for a wider brush stroke, build more texture on texture, or if I should just leave the canvas alone.
 
It hardly seems like a real dilemma, but many artists suffer from insecurities and are too critical at vulnerable points in the creative process. I feel painters and other artists move too quickly to judge their work when they could be steps away from creating something really beautiful, because when I come back to my abstract art projects with a clear mind I feel inspired and can see clearly what to do next.
