Here’s an example:
The other day I noticed several long pieces of hair adhered to the wall where I take my daily shower. I was fascinated by the form they took.
I took a photo, darkened the lines so that they were clear and then I colored in some of the spots and created the abstract piece here. This would be a “sketch” if I were going to actually recreate this piece on canvas, the detail in the painting would be much cleaner and precise, but I did enjoy the fun of creating!
Original photograph (notice the lines – fascinating to me!)
During my “art education” years I was fascinated by the form and shapes of “early on” Surrealism, Abstract expressionism as well as Pablo Picasso’s periods of art known as Cubism. Although color was an expressive element – during Picasso’s periods of the abstract – he primarily relied on a simple drawing to create form and space.
Everyone’s taste in art is personal to them whether abstract or realism, art is in the eye of the beholder. Creativity however has no limits, no medium, no set style, just going with the flow and enjoying the process.
Remember, creativity is out there everywhere waiting to inspire your imagination, just look for it!
