Abstract

One of the reasons I prefer abstract art is that it is (for me) more about intuition and what I'm feeling in the moment than any sort of plan. I don't sketch out a preliminary version of what the shapes and colors will be.

And I definitely don't know anything about color theory, balance, composition, etc. aside from what is just innately pleasing for ME to look at.
So. Here is something I made a couple of weeks ago using some oil pastels and a few blending sticks.

You say you don't know anything about color theory, but after all it's just a theory. The proof of the pudding is in the taste (if you'll forgive another food metaphor!). So your work tastes good. When can I get one to put on my wall?

I particularly like the brushstrokes within the broader gestures. You can feel the canvas and the brush through the visual textures....

Overall this reminds me of a homecoming, of a journey's end at the end of a long road. All is not necessarily well, but you are home and it's where you want to be... Do you have a pic of the entire image? These ones look like small vignettes...

I like the contrast between the orange, blue, red, and white. I think it's great.
