i love abstract art, originally uploaded by judywatt.

The colors didn't come out quite right in this photo, but you get the idea anyway. This one is 24x24 inches and I just love the texture and color.

I've loved abstract art since I was a little kid. I used to cut out pieces of magazine pages that were just blocks of color and then make collages with them when I was maybe 10 or 12.

After not painting for a while due to lack of space, I am getting back into it and it is so much fun. Art should be fun above all else, for me anyway.

I am not into that whole "suffering artist" thing - if I am not having fun doing it, you are not going to find me doing it. There are enough things I have to do in life that are not fun, so art has to be fun for me.

Life being too short and all that. :)

Throw in some reds and it's classic Chagall pallette (which I love) :)

Chagall is the most famous artist that came out of my homeland - Belarus :) So when you see there log houses and peacocks and goats - that's Belarus of early XXc.

i love that one. :) i agree, though i'm a suffering artist by default ;), when i create art, it's my healing relief/therapy/fun.

what did you do to get that texture? i absolutely love it. it looks like encaustic.

sometimes i fall into the suffering artist point. people love to buy my awls, and i hate making them. but i need the money. other than that i have fun. i just don't like sanding those awls.

i used some light molding paste for the texture. glad you like it!

the part i hate about art is trying to photograph anything larger than about 11x14 well - i don't have the studio equipment to do that here and am not going to be buying any equipment like that in the near future.

i love to take photos outdoors, but indoors, not. plus i am not keen on editing photos much lately because my old PC is slowing down so much, it just gets very tedious, the amount of time it takes.

fortunately i am not trying to make money from my art or photos - i do make some from istock, but that takes no effort at all once the images are up there.

i gave up on ebay a long time ago and have not listed anything on etsy for ages either - it just was more trouble than it was worth. i may go back to listing some stuff on etsy again, but only because i have such a stockpile - i would not expect to make much money there.

some people are great at just selling selling selling, but for me, all that takes so much time and effort for so little profit, it sucks the energy out of me and then i don't even want to paint anymore.
