Today we're exploring some of the amazing abstract paintings of PreShrunk 2022! We're always thrilled to see Abstract Art being submitted each year. Vibrant colors, mixed with energetic brushstrokes always fill the gallery with positive vibes!

First up, we have Gallery Artist, Paulette Melanson;

Paulette Melanson, A Day at the Carnival, 4" x 5", acrylic on board

"As I was finishing these abstract paintings for Pre-Shrunk show, I realized they reminded me of the fun times we had going to the yearly local carnival with my parents when I was a child and later with my friends as a teenager.  It was one of the most exciting events of the year, on par with Halloween and Christmas!" - Paulette Melanson
