Going abstract

I have been wanting to try my hand at abstract art for a while but have been extremely intimidated by it for some reason. So, I finally decided to try it out and found it to be extremely liberating. This is just my first. I know that I have a ton of improvement but that will come with time.

Well, the first couple of days of summer break have been a blast. I have made up a schedule for me and the kids and it is really working out well. They know exactly what we are doing for the day and around what time we will do it. I don't know why I did not do this years ago. I don't know how much creative time I will get for the next couple of months but, I know that lasting memories are on there way!
Just finished this canvas last week. I have been working on it for a while. The cross is made of clay and is similar to the technique that I did on HGTV. I am really pleased with the way it turned out. I am most definitely going to have to play around more with paper clay. I usually use the clay that you bake but, it is nice to use airdry clay since it is summer and my studio can get pretty warm. This is a 15" by 30" canvas.
