According to Wikipedia:
Abstraction uses a strategy of simplification, wherein formerly concrete details are left ambiguous, vague, or undefined; thus effective communication about things in the abstract requires an intuitive or common experience between the communicator and the communication recipient.
In case you are curious, this artwork does have some abstraction for me (and Ms Kathy at least). It's my abstract, mixed media version of something animal or mineral. I'm not going to say what precisely, because the whole point is that you should add your own meaning to the painting.
I LOVED creating this piece. I'm thinking I may even add a little more to it, just because I can. I've never really been grabbed by abstract art before, but this was just so much fun, I think I may try it out some more!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone! :-)
