The Daily Abstract

Daily abstract paintings posted throughout 2022

About The Daily Abstract

The Daily Abstract began on the 1st January 2022. The little paintings that I posted daily to this blog, during 2022, were mostly mixed media with a few digital paintings towards the end of the year. They gave me the opportunity to play with different techniques, styles, materials and colours.

Sometimes I created the paintings to test a specific composition for a much larger piece of work that I was planning. Others were pure experimentation, or a reaction to a place I had been, something I had seen or experienced, perhaps a mood I wanted to convey, or were simply fun to paint.

By the 31st December 2022, I had posted 365 abstracts, one a day for a year.

I hope you enjoy looking through the paintings on The Daily Abstract. Please use the archive links below to look at each month’s paintings or the search bar.

Future abstract paintings will be posted on my Journal.

Mixed media;

  • Acrylic paint
  • Fern leaves
  • Sand
  • Wood base approx 13cm x 25cm 


The following series of paintings, which I will post over the next few days, were inspired by walks through local woodlands and the fractal beauty of ferns. Woodlands are magical and sometimes feel mystical to me and these paintings attempt to capture that feeling and the way that exploring woodlands and forests can be so calming and meditative.
