Fall in Love with Abstract Paintings Through Texture

Up close section of abstract painting Electric Pulses

Abstract paintings evoke a wide variety of feelings from viewers, and they evoke different feelings at different times from the same viewers.

Through the use of colors, shapes, brush strokes and texture, abstract paintings allow us to experience and work through feelings. Sometimes, those feelings might be suppressed. What is more is that we can experience such healing without exposing ourselves or having to say a word.

According to science, viewing abstract art stimulates areas in our brain that other art styles don't, and the result is happiness! Learn more about How Abstract Art Makes You Happy.

Beyond their visual stimulation, though, have you ever thought about the tactile stimulation that is gained through the texture found in art?

I can't tell you how many times I have run my fingers over my abstract paintings just to feel the texture along my fingertips. Sometimes, I even close my eyes. This is especially true when I use mixed media to create my abstract paintings.
