Be Inspired - Abstract Art

Words to Inspire

“Wisdom is the abstract of the past, but beauty is the promise of the future” 
 Oliver Wendell Holmes

Idea to Inspire

Create a piece of art with no plan. Use a variety of colors, add texture, and enjoy the process of freely creating with no destination in mind.

Photos to Inspire

Art can be inspiring. Abstract art, whether you like it or not, is a showcase of colors, textures, and shapes. I hope today's abstract art collection from a variety of artists on Etsy inspires you.

  2. Unique pieces! Abstract art has never been something I have gravitated towards, but it is always interesting!

    It sound warmer in Chicago than Boston. It is so strange leaving the house in the morning and no jacket in March!

    1. Your right Val, there is always something interesting to see in abstract art even when you don't like it.

      We are having another record breaking day in Chicago 86 degrees, I had to break out my sandals today.

  3. I appreciate abstract art very much. I have two pieces in the living room that go very well with the clean lines of our furniture. This always surprises people who know of my work, which is very girly and nostalgic :)

  6. Beautiful! This reminds me that I've been meaning to try to create a big piece for behind our couch for quite some time now. The getting ideas and getting started part is difficult!

    1. That is the hardest part for me to Nancy. Sometimes you just have to start and don't think. If you don't like it in the end you can paint over the canvas. I hope you share your painting on your blog one day soon.
