Doodads and Widgets

One of the great things about abstract art is that it doesn’t necessarily have to represent anything real. With these two designs there is almost something tangible but not really recognizable. Are these ancient (or modern?) hieroglyphs? Maybe circuit boards in space? I’ve allowed my penchant for detail a free rein and let these evolve into something intricate but ultimately unknowable. What do you call something like that? Normally, I don’t title my abstracts but I felt compelled to name these “DOODADS” and “WIDGETS” to add a bit of whimsy. It seemed appropriate. They were both created on an iPad with Procreate app and an Apple pencil.

    1. Who knows? Maybe it’s all in the titles; DOODADS=DADA. Maybe it’s that they almost look like something familiar but in an altered context. Whatever-DADA, MAMA,WAWA, HAHA. Thanks for writing. Always great to hear from you.
