Please do not post the following:
2)digital art
4)realistic paintings!

There are other groups for these types of images, so pictures that don't feature abstract paintings will be removed from the group pool. Repeat offenders will be removed or banned form the group as needed.

ALSO, including the media you used to create the work, and the size as well would be very helpful to your viewing audience.

Group Description

This community is for abstract paintings only! No photography. No digital art. Collage is borderline--but paint should be the dominant medium. That means brush, color, canvas, paper or whatever, as long as the camera and digital post-processing is only involved to get a digital image of your painting to look as close as possible to the way it looks on the wall.

Including the type of media used, and the size of the work makes the viewing experience richer for all as well.

Please remember that this is about abstract art only - so no surrealism, no realism, no still life, rather no pop art either. Colorfield painting! Minimalism! Action Painting! Cubism! Everything you would see in the 'Abstract Paintings' category on deviantArt.

Just think of Mark Rothko, Piet Mondrian, Wassily Kandinsky, Jackson Pollock and the abstracts of Paul Klee or Joan Miró.

Have fun & don't forget to spead the word ;)
