Flora Graffiti

Well, I finally made it into the studio this past weekend and my Flora Graffiti piece is the result.

The art I typically create is very logical, structured and precise. I think this comes from my career as a software engineer. However, lately I've been inspired to stretch myself to learn a little more about how to create my favorite style of art - abstract graffiti.

In this piece, I started with a blank canvas (white cotton) and I painted an abstract nature scene. It's hard to tell from the picture but there is an assortment of abstract leaves and grasses within the piece. the flowers were added with paint, fabric markers, and water soluble wax pastels.

I love the final result and it was great fun to explore this style of art which is so different from my usual work!
