Abstract/Impressionistic Painting, Impression of Day Lilies I, by Canadian Artist Kim Blair

Impression of Day Lilies I
20x30 oil on canvas

These last three postings of abstract paintings were posted a bit backwards... and by that I mean that this one was the first one in the series, and the other two abstracts were created after this painting.  Sometimes it is fun to mix things up a bit, in order to make life a little more interesting.

I am about to begin work on some more abstracts... they will be a bit larger than my usual small daily paintings, plus the format of the gallery profile canvas will be different.  Small paintings are fun, but as I have mentioned in a few previous blogs it is time to change my focus a bit by creating a few unique pieces (mixed in with the smaller sized canvas), but for now a change is in the air.  After I catch up on some 'Design Class' homework this weekend,  there will be a flurry of activity in my studio next week, so stay tuned.  

My foray into abstraction isn't new, as you can see from these past few posts.  Art has the capacity to get us thinking in new directions... let's see where this adventure goes.

Enjoying your abstracts, Kim. This has such a nice color palette. I'm trying to add a bit of abstraction to my work so it's nice to see where you are going.
