Welcome Fark Artists to our Fartist Friday Contest. This week our theme is "Abstraction Distractions". We'll be creating specially for this contest an abstract work using any art medium: drawing, painting, Pshop, photography, MS Paint, macaroni & glue on cardboard, etc. Use shapes, forms, colors to create a view beyond physical reality. You've just crossed over into...The F'artiste Zone.

Tippy the Turtle's Tips!

Your art must be created specially for the contest this week!


Contest Rules:

One (1) individual entry item per post please, and a total of three (3) entries posted maximum allowed per person.

All votable entries must follow this week's theme requirements. Posts that don't follow the theme will remain but have Voting disabled. Be sure to check the theme!

Prize: Bragging rights and a mention in the Fark NotNewsletter!

Hearty congratulations to last week's contest winner thespindrifter for their teary-eyed (literally) gorgeous watercolor - and check out all our talented F'Artistes!

FFFUQ (Fartist Friday Frequently Unasked Questions):

What?
Fartist Fridays are weekly creativity contests that you can participate in with things you have on hand since many of us are stuck at home right now. If you have an idea for a future contest theme please post it here or send it along to Farkback.

Why? To have fun showing off our skills (or lack thereof!) while we practice socially distancing together, and to vote for your favorite entries.

When? This contest is submitted on Thursdays with entries open immediately to TotalFarkers (membership has its privileges!), then it goes to the Main Page on Friday. Entries close around midnight Eastern on Sunday night. All times are approximate because we're all drunk.

How Does Voting Work? Check the "Enable voting for this entry" box. If you forget, just report it and ask. All entries that meet the contest theme are considered eligible for voting, so please mention if you prefer voting NOT be enabled.

Check out past F'artiste contests by clicking on the Topic Tag and check the weekly Fark NotNewsletter for info on that week's contest theme ahead of time. All skill levels encouraged (as you can see from my sample below) and most importantly: We're all in this together so let's create some F'Arts together - Fark Arts, that is.

This is a photo I took of a dragonfly with first the Find Edges and then Stained Glass filters in PShop.

A quick Crayola color pencil abstract landscape with a visitor. It was actually fun making this one.

I don't know if this qualifies. One of the cheap-o Photoshop knockoffs I had once had a kaleidoscope feature which was a lot of fun to play with. I always liked using architectural photos because we're used to seeing buildings with right angles or curves, but not seven sides or nine sides or whatever. This was made from a photo of the ceiling of a church in Buffalo, New York.

p.s. Yes, I took the photo but the kaleidoscope image was just a computer filter, so I'm not claiming I "made" this image.

Original acrylic canvas I did a few years ago. I was just sort of freestyle painting and it ended up looking a bit like a landscape.

Beautiful works all!

It's really neat! Using a computer filter is fine and it'll qualify if you created this week for the contest?

I honestly looked for the vote button before reading that this is a sample.
Maybe you should have samples as well as join us in the thread as Elsinore does in the Farktography threads.

/you're both appreciated, and everyone who works to make this a better place.

Oh thank you, what nice things to hear! I really enjoy hosting these threads. Every week I think "Aaahhh am I going to come up with??" in a slight panic and then hope whatever idea it is turns into a fun thread. Some are hits, some are misses but I always appreciate so much the participation and efforts.

We've seen such beautiful art over the past year & a half of F'artisting. I do prefer to just post my usual sample-example as a guide of sorts and then sit back to enjoy all the lovely artwork.

Yes, a lot of people work hard to make Fark a good place and I'm damn proud to know them.

Just made this by moving my camera over our kitchen table, with some filtering afterwards. Wish I had the software to wrap it into a funnel like a Doctor Who intro but just on my iPhone.

Thanks so much for your kind words! I enjoy your Farktography photos (and yours, too, E-Brake!!) I keep meaning to do something with Fartist Friday, but haven't had the time. One of these days....

I'll toss this one I made earlier this week in for fun. I was messing around with a digital paint program and decided to try to make something psychedelic. It's sort of abstract I guess, but no votey. Yes, I like cats.

Are you sure it was your kitchen table and not, say, a snake?

Always in awe of those that can paint with oils or acrylic. Some really nice stuff.
