Painting in Abstract

My name is Sara Sha and I am an abstract painter. I love vibrant colors and can attribute that from my childhood travels to Mexico. Seeing all the bright colored houses was so different from back home. I am drawn to blues, but I like using other colors as well. Some colors I love to use are Indigo, Prussian Blue, Ultramarine, Dark Blue-Green, Deep Cadmium Yellow, Quinacridone Magenta, Bright Yellow-Green, Hot Pink, Light Pink, Bright Orange and White. I love to mix my own colors.

In abstract, I am intrigued by movement and balancing positive and negative space. My goal is to keep the painting minimal. That way I can relish in the brush stroke.

Instagram has introduced me to so many artists doing great things. Other artists have inspired me. Nature has always been a great inspiration, as well as working with feelings and what colors come to mind is a fascinating way to paint as well. Sometimes I just do it and I can’t say where it comes from, I am just playing and having fun. I like to have this approach. If I don’t like it, I cover it up or erase it or startover. It is not a big deal.  I think, having this state of mind is important, it keeps me from putting myself in a rut, because I don’t want to mess something up. I am willing to gamble, because it helps me keep moving forward with my art.
