What is abstract art in oil painting?

This Abstract black and white oil painting #13  is a single canvas work where the paint seems confined at the top yet seeks to expand to the edges.


What is abstract art in oil painting?


I used the  blank canvas  as a starting point,thick black paint was applied at the top which allowed the  paint to drip  so  this was the beginning of  this painting.

As the paint dripped I used my brushes to guide the paint,which creates branches and shadows in this abstract oil painting.

In conclusion,gravity completes this oil painting creating perhaps a visual map,a black and white constellation of stars. 
What do you think?

Why? My creative process!

Because I use  Color,line and space and gravity

For example,I think about beginnings and endings of any moment and that  exact moment of the beginning and the end.

For instance,this painting took 2 weeks to complete and the  process includes "stretching" the canvas over the wood frame.

But I do not use "Pre-stretched canvas and  no sketches were done.

You might be surprised that I use over 50 different types and styles of brushes

Why?This creates different textures,adding to how you see this oil painting.

How many tubes of oil paint? Over  100 different tubes!

As I use many different colors which add to this abstract art.

Above the horizon,black paint gravitates into the white landscape,branching into shadowy shades of grey 

P Drips of color ,shapes and lines of shades of Grey Abstract black and White  oil painting.

With this subtraction  of color the painting reveals the beauty of black,white and grey.


I do not make copies of my paintings nor limited editions.

There is only only one original unique modern work ,monochrome,detail pictures reveal vertical drips of paint.
