My Very Own Abstract Art

Tuesday, August 23, 2011

There is something timeless and striking about abstract art.  The good abstract art, not the kind I saw in the orthodontist office yesterday ;).  I know it has been a hot topic on the blogs lately so I don't mean to bore you with more of the same.  However, I do want to share with you the lovely piece that I recently won on the blog "My Many Moments".  Heather shared her inspiration on this post  and decided to try painting her own.  Actually, she made two - one to keep and one to giveaway.  I was thrilled to be the lucky recipient.

By the way, if you haven't checked out Heather's blog, you should.  She has the formula for the modern/vintage mix that I often refer to.  Thank you Heather!

For more DIY art ideas, check out my "art" board on pinterest.  Not all of them are actually DIY projects, but they are inspiring just the same.  



I am especially crazy for this one.

Enjoy your day!

  4. Congrats on your new art! I've been thinking a lot about this lately, not only because I love the look and feel it is timeless, but because I need some added modern touches in my house and I don't want to spend a fortune to get them! So I may try my hand at DIYing some abstract art soon.

  6. Congrats on the giveaway! I love her blog! I'm also drooling over those two abstracts over that blue couch! Beautiful! I usually rely on my daughter to create my abstracts! She's the real artist of the family :)
    Have a great week!

  8. That's a great piece of art, and I like it because it doesn't look like every other piece of abstract art that's out there. Looks great in that spot in your home.

  12. Rene, you lucky duck--I had forgotten that you won Heather's giveaway! The piece looks fresh and unique against the traditional elements in the vignette.

    And I too am loving Jordan Ferney's abstract art DIY--so great.
