Harmonious Circles of Life! - Dual Abstract Painting
Today marks the 5th anniversary of Busy Mom Creates! I couldn't feel happier and thankful as we celebrate all my loyal readers. Words are powerless to express my gratitude for all your continued support and encouragement.
People think abstract art is about nothing, but honestly it gives you the freedom to explore the art as it's open to interpretation. Today, contemporary art is the key style with its dynamic combination of methods, concepts, subjects and materials.

Take your time to involve and examine an abstract art by its form, line, color, composition and process of building up textures. This includes the positive and negative space usage as well. Come up with your interpretations and don't forget to let me know in the comment section below.
The professional canvas is the most common support medium as the surface for an artwork. Heavy duty canvas (level 3) is the high quality natural cotton which is stretched and stapled to a thick wooden frame. The two 20x20 canvases were set up together for preparing and creating this particular artwork. Fresh wet paint smell still lingers as it requires couple of months to dry completely for the final sealant coatings.
The striking term "minimalistic design" plays the vital role here. Minimalism is about expressing only the most essential and necessary elements of a subject by getting rid of unnecessary features and components. Affirmatively, two dominationing and contrasting hues results in a modern and sleek look. The cooler and refreshing blue along with the neutral brown hues leads to a trendy and relaxing mood as they harmoniously compliment each other. Pure imagination and process resulted in this simple art considering the 8 elements of composition - focus, balance, unity, rhythm, contrast, proposition, pattern and movement.
I have incorporated the geometric abstraction in this painting with circles as it creates a sense of harmony and completeness. With no distinct beginning or end, it implies graceful movement creating a path for the eye to travel around the design as it represents life and its cycle. The circles of life represents love, truth, humility, honesty and gratitude.
This curvey pattern connects and resonates with the feelings and emotions of love and energy. Straight freehand thick lines expresses strength and indicates a sense of motionless rest and peace. Additionally, it gives a visual depth, distance and balance to this art.
The techniques fused here are brushing, splattering, blotting, and blending. To create dimension layering of paint doesn't seem to be apt for this type of painting. However an oil painting's beauty arises with its texture and the extra shine from the oil, else it would have the effect of an acrylic paint only. To incorporate the little texture and dimension, small groups of circles on both canvas brought out this subtle yet much needed effect.
