I'm taking an Abstract Painting class right now and have succeeded with abstract when they are not of a specific object, but still struggle when trying to be completely abstract with a real object. Here are two paintings I did this past week.



Sell Art Online

I do have to admit that this painting of the pear is the free-est painting style I have ever used.
I am quite pleased with it. I feel like I'm breaking away from the confines of detail.

Absolutely gorgeous... I love the second one, the most

Can these be printed and how big can you print these? (I have no clue what it takes to get a print of artwork),

I submitted this to Fineartamerica for sale and they say that it can be printed up to 20" x20". The size varies depending on the number of "pixels per inch" that the high resolution jpg file has.
Many good cameras give high ppi which sometimes enables the print to be even bigger than the original. Painting digitally, I can control and adjust the ppi as I want to make the prints as big as I feel would be good. PPI is different from "dpi." That is the measure used in printing defining the number of dots per inch the printer put out.

These are great! The top one is very linear and sharp edged, and the bottom one has beautiful soft sculpting. And now, what will you name them? That can be an additional challenge in abstract.

That is definitely a challenge. For the FAA one, the name is always based on top keywords for search engines,so it is listed as "Purple Yellow Fruit Abstract." I know that sounds weird, but that is how you have to title them to get people to find them.
The other one I'm still thinking about. Here is another one I did that a name just jumped out at me.

This ids called "Wobbly City." It reminded me of when my husband and I were in Central Park and we were looking up at all the building surrounding the park. of course the buildings weren't wobbling at the time.

This one is great fun, and the name fits perfectly.

I like all of your abstracts. I start out trying to do one and end up putting in the detail. I think it's your colors that particularly appeal to me. I really like your Wobbly City and the title is terrific!

Thank you for all the comments. The white at the bottom, BTW, was accidental. I painted it on my new computer/tablet and the screen is pretty small compared to the usual computer screen I paint on. I didn't realize there was more to the canvas until I posted here. Oh well, I could always crop it.
