Green + blue background rev 2.1


The green and blue background returns for day two, but it's incognito. I kept looking at the squares of acrylic paint and turned the page around, and started to see it as a wall of abstract art. So I took an abstract watercolor I'd done a while ago (see watercolors + salt) and glued tiny pieces of that to the page, adding more squares and neocolors too. I don't think I'll add any journaling (where would I, even if I wanted to!) but the idea behind the page is that just a few years ago I didn't "get" anything out of abstract paintings. They made no sense to me. It was like the artist just splashed paint on and called it a painting. But now I adore many abstract paintings.

Lovely abstract work: Wendy McWilliams, Mary Ann Wakely, Rebecca Rousseau

love the salt technique and the layer of images is giving depth!

What I like about ABSTRACT is the ability to just take in all the lovely colors and lines, I don't have to think too much!! Other art, that has identifiable work, always makes me think more....And sometimes I need a break from my own 'nawgin......Love the colors here :D

This reminds me of little shards of mirror ~ I like the layers of other other pieces incorporated in this.
