Post your finished Abstract Art here for Show & Tell!

Your work can be any size, any medium, as long as it is abstract and as long as it is finished.  There will be a separate thread for works-in-progress, if you want feedback on a piece before it is finished.

Please check out the Show & Tell Guidelines before posting here.

Be sure to do all of the things below if you are posting your work:

  • Show us your artwork - 1 artwork per post. (Click here to learn how to add an image to your forum post.)
  • Tell us about it (medium, size, techniques, and what inspired the piece).
  • Tell us whether you welcome critique. You can type something like "Comments and feedback welcome" to indicate that you are interested in receiving constructive criticism that may help broaden your art skills. If you have specific questions about certain aspects of your piece, please ask in your initial post, because it will help other members hone in on the areas where you want feedback.

You may also comment on other people's artwork, but remember to keep it friendly and constructive.  If you like a piece, please explain why.

Can't wait to see your abstract art!  :)

Its very very lovely and definitely gives off "vibes"!  I actually feel them.  Its soothing and depicts, to me, soft jazz.  Very eye appealing.

I made this piece for the July theme of MUSIC, so I titled it "Light Jazz." It's done on 140 lb. coldpress watercolor paper, 9 X 12 inches, with a Pigma Micron 01 black ink pen and various colored pencils. It's supposed to be about jazzy sound vibrations. I feel fairly underwhelmed by the whole thing. Although it is very much brighter than the photo shows, I still feel that not only did I not convey vibration very well, I'm just not pleased with some of the color choices. I started out with the radiating spaces with cream, limepeel, aqua, and blush pink, and I like those colors. Except for the middle area, I like the basic drawing, but I don't like much else. I would welcome comments, suggestions, and critiques.

Thank you Sharon, for your great comment. It is so much fun making these doodles, i really love it. Last Christmas i made a lot of Christmas card, and the one shown was my favorite.

Love doodles, too. I'm especially taken with your center piece. I'd love to see where else you might go with the area where earth meets sky.

This piece is called "Angel on the Avenue" I painted her to protect the shops on "Atlantic Avenue" in Delray Beach Florida when we learned of a hurricane heading our way. I guess she did her job because the avenue is still thriving.

My paint of choice is acrylics- the painting is 3' high and 5' long.

The angel enjoys her surroundings in a private school in Boca Raton, Fl. hanging on a wall in a teachers office.

This is my crazy interpretation of a flower garden. It is acrylic on 12x12 canvas. The flower charm is off a necklace I bought at a yard sale for 10 cents.

I think this is absolutely beautiful!

I was playing around with various mediums, and used water soluble oil crayons, acrylic, watercolor crayons, and different mediums.  It seems that gel medium does not let you add the oil or watercolor crayons on too much. . but when using gloss or satin medium, it takes and grabs onto the color more.  Hmmm, who knew?? 

I don't think this is done yet. . . I want more depth, more texture, but don't want to lose what's going on now.  Guess I'll just sit with it awhile and see what comes up. 

Any suggestions would be welcomed and appreciated.

My most recent. 3rd oil painting I have ever done. I added glitter to the painting to give it some jazz! 

Shu, i love your abstract garden. It has all the elements of sun, water, earth & air. This is something i would want to buy.
