I have recently been "bitten" by the art bug. I have been painting abstract since around 2005. My mother used to paint murals and nature scenes so that's probably where I picked up the desire to paint. Although I can appreciate all types of paintings, my preferred type of paintings have always been abstract. I have several more abstract paintings I have just finished and hope to upload them here at Artpal, soon.
As a side note, but related. I build websites as my other interest and have actually put together an abstract art forum where we discuss everything "abstract art". You are all welcome to join or just visit.
My forum is located at: AbstractArtForum.com
