Raise your hand if you love free art…I know I do! I am excited to share this free abstract art printable with you!
When I first started blogging, it took me a very long time to identify myself as an “artist”. I knew I was a mom, a wife, and I liked to create, but it seemed like a big reach to call myself an actual artist. Even though I loved to paint, and draw, it wasn’t something I had gone to school for or gotten a degree in.
The first time I referred to myself as an “artist” I felt like I was lying. The words felt so foreign rolling off of my tongue. I think I was almost afraid if I said it, that someone would call me out, and think I was being silly (A few years ago, I realize it’s actually a real thing called “impostor syndrome”, and many of us feel that way all of the time, in all kinds of different ways.). Honestly, I was relieved when I realized that it was ok to identify myself with something I do, and fully embrace it.
In exploring all kinds of art techniques and mediums in the last few years (like this abstract agate paint techinque, or this way to paint with a putty knife.), I found one thing I really loved was painting abstract art. I get inspiration and colors from a lot of flowers in nature, like the greens and pinks in these snapdragons.
While I really love still-life, sculpture, design and pattern, abstract art has a special place in my heart because there are really no rules. It’s all about what you like when the paint goes on the canvas…and if you don’t like it, it can be fixed. Acrylic paint is very forgiving.
While I love painting abstract art, the best is when I get to teach it. I love the looks on people’s faces in workshops when they put paint to canvas, and see how freeing it is.
This painting actually started out much darker, and while I love it, I ended up painting over much of it with white paint, and I love it even more! It’s perfect displayed on my faux mantel with vintage brass candlesticks, and all of my plants. It feels very springy and fresh to me.
