Art: "Bubbles" & "Grapes"

Took an abstract art class a month ago, just now posting photos of the art. This is the first abstract art class I've ever taken. The instructor told us that abstract art isn't about painting something recognizable, but is about the artist expressing one's emotions on canvas, and hopefully the viewer will get some meaning out of looking at it. Seems to me it is all about artistically slathering the canvas with paint. I was in a good humor that day and found making abstract art to be very fun! Maybe "fun" is what showed up on the canvas...

"Grapes of Wrath" by mayah(c)2017 30" X 30"

Abstract painting. I did this in about an hour and a half at my abstract painting class. The paint was put on with an old cancelled credit card rather than a paint brush, which greatly quickened the process of covering the entire canvas with paint. The "grapes" were painted using a stencil. The title is just my quirky sense of humor.

I had a lot of left-over paint on my palette, and not wanting to waste it, the paint and the stencil where used to cover an off-white sheet of art paper and a light green piece of paper.

Once home, the paint-covered paper was used to make two pages in my art journal...

and with the last scrap of the painted paper, a small framed piece with hand embroidery; the background paper is hand-painted by my friend and fellow artist LFIRE (Dreaming a New Reality: )

I am still working on the second abstract painting that was done during this class; turning it into a mixed-media work. Will post when done!
