Just a comment, Heidi, in response to your opening sentence.
I am an abstract artist...both objective and non-objective.
My medium of choice for over 40 years has been paint.
Almost two years ago I took my first photograph with my iphone.
It was abstract, of course.... many people have marveled at how much my photographs look like my paintings. No surprise...an artist's eye is an artist's eye, regardless of what tool is in his hand.
My latest project of hybrids, has paired my abstract photographs with my paintings. Some of the paintings are 30 years old and all of the photographs aren't even 2!
It's all in the eye!!
Lovely work everyone! I adore abstracts. I don't do photography myself but I just wanted to let you all know if I had enough money I would have bought a few of these. I'll save my pennies and I hope you all sell a bunch!
