Abstract painting Life As It Is

When I was growing up in Soviet Union there was no abstract art. There was only socialist realism. Well, there was abstract in museums but it was a "capitalism" art and we as "communists" were not suppose to do that.
So now I decided to dive deep in the art of abstracts and try to do a small abstract painting a day (or close to it). Small is not as scary as big, so I might handle it. Will see.
This one not the very first, occasionally I did some abstracts in my self-learning process, but it always felt like I don't know what I am doing. I still don't really know what I am doing, but I have ideas of color combinations, compositions and just go with intuition.
This particular work was inspired by Russian-German artist Wassily Kandinsky, his bold bright colors.
I called it - Life As It Is:




Or if you better prefer Etsy (where you can use a credit card) here is the link:

Cool spider web photos and a new painting.

Very often walking in our Pacific Northwest woods, I see lots of spider webs, shining like jewelry on the sun.  One sunny autumn day I took the time to make a lot of photos


Beautiful diffraction on web's strings:




Interesting abstract in black and white:



And here my new painting - Still life with apples. This one painted itself almost entirely from my imagination.



Size 16x16 inches (41x41 cm) 
Painted in acrylic on a canvas mounted on masonite board.
$150

Painting. Happy light bulb.

 Happy light bulb, acrylic on canvas 7.5x9.5 in

This is my entry for Daily Paintworks challenge. It was fun and hard to capture lots of reflection on the light bulb. I tried to make it more happy and colorful. Painting is done with acrylic on canvas glued to masonite board and finished in protective polymer varnish.

Autumn leaves. Challenge painting for DPW.

Here it is - little treasuries of the fall. It actually was hard to choose just three, every little dry curly leaf is so different. As it was suggested in the challenge I left some bright magenta streaks of underpainting shine through blue background.
Painting is made with acrylic paint on canvas glued to masonite board and measures 11x7.5 inches. It's available for sale on AUCTION this week on Daily Paintworks.

Swirl, abstract acrylic painting.

This painting is improvisation on science fiction theme. I thought about an alien planet with whirlpool in a strange forest. I painted it with acrylic and used a pallet knife to create those alien "trees". Painted on canvas, glued to masonite board, and covered with protective UV varnish.
Available for sale in my gallery in Daily Paintwork or on my website .

Painting space.

I always loved space - stars, galaxies, planets. They are fascinating. I even took an astronomy course in University, but quickly figured that I love to look at all this, but not really study. Here are three space paintings, which I recently completed, all available for sale in my Etsy store: http://www.etsy.com/shop/yuliart.

 This one I call "Supernova":

Spiral galaxy:
