'Face of Boredom'

'Movement in Line'

The smart phone has really good drawing applications.  This is one of the many I have been playing with...doodling.  For both of these, I did a basic drawing (you have to really simplify on a 3"x4" screen!)  and then I went into my photo apps to add color filters.  It is amazing what works to inspire you to think of something new for your artwork.  I am seriously considering doing some abstract work because of these tiny studies.  I love the color and movement, and the freedom that abstraction gives you.  My problem is my obsessive behavior...I want to overwork each piece.  Maybe working tiny has that advantage of not being able to do that.  Should I do just miniatures?  And would anyone want abstract paintings for their dollhouses?
