My first ever abstract painting. I did this at the Link program art class. The theme for that class was abstract paintings with acrylics. I must say, that this was actually really enjoyable. I never really liked abstract art, but after doing this, I have discovered it is actually very nice. It can be a great way to let out your creativity and emotion. I think I got alot of emotion out in the paintings and I am happy with the way they turned out. This one was the first one I did, and I'm happy that I got alot of positive comments on it.
When I was painting it, it started out as something negative. The dark colors (negative things) were supposed to be engulfing the light ones (positive, good things), but as I painted it, I started to look at it differently and decided that it was the exact opposite. The good happy things are breaking through the negative, that's why it is called optimism. Doing this made me get all philosophical while I was painting, really learned alot and thought about things. Overall a very liberating experience, I think I'll continue to do more abstract! (boy that whole message sounded really serious....BANANA PHONE! *there, not so serious now...*)
materials: only used a poly brush and tooth brush to paint it, acrylic paint
