Abstract Expressionism

Art that rejects true visual representation. It has few recognizable images with great emphasis on line, color, shape, texture, value; putting the expression of the feelings or emotions of the artist above all else.

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Blues

 I love my little lady balancing on the telephone wire with her crow friends, sometimes it's fun to
 think abstract.

Of course, getting a few zen dangles in also makes me smile! 

I enjoyed all the different layers, the molding paste rain drops, the painted and inked girl with her puffy paint hair, the layers of lace, twine and buttons and the doodling: are all my favorite elements in one piece.

Sandee..your tag is so pretty. I love the girl balancing on the birds on a wire, too. Very cute and effective use of that stamp! She is such a sweet stamped image and I love the lace you've added to her dress. That really adds alot! I also love your positive sentiment. It's very cute and really makes this piece! Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. <3 Candy

Thank you for your comment Candy, but I would love to point out that I hand painted the girl, the only stamped images are the crows. ♥

Candy C said...

Wow Sandee...now I am even MORE imprressed with your piece! I am so envious of anyone who can freehand draw like that! She is just darling and you are quite a talent! <3 Candy
