Spring Abstract Background Collection - looking for suggestions

posted on 20th of march, 2013

Designers always need backgrounds and I thought this was the perfect time of year to put together a public collection of soft abstract spring backgrounds and so I'm asking you all to suggest images to include.

I'm looking for images that say spring time - bright or pastel abstracts with lots of copy space that designers can use on websites or as backgrounds for other images. Colors like blue, pink, purple, green and yellow with a happy abstract feel - textures and patterns appropriate for the season.

I recently created some new spring backgrounds which I plan to include along with many others from fellow artists. Here are a few of mine to give you an idea of what I'm looking for. I've also included the url for the collection that I've started.

Please post your images and your file number in the comments and I'll review them. I believe that when you post an image in the comments you use the image tags without using the right or left portion of the tag. If' I'm wrong about this please correct me.

I look forward to seeing lots of image! There are so many good ones here I wouldn't know where to start without your suggestions!


Here's the link to what I have so far

Thanks so much for the suggestions so far!
I've added a bunch to the collection - I love all the images everyone has shared so far and have included many of them. Those I didn't include either seemed to say "summer" to me rather than "spring" or did not seem abstract enough - I almost included some anyway since I liked them so much - but I want the collection to be well-defined, so I restrained myself.
I 'm looking for abstract images either as a result of their design or due to an all-over pattern where there were recognizable items. Flowers certainly say spring but I was looking for stylized images where they can fade into the background rather than truly recognizable flowers.
I've also added a few other images that those who responded didn't actually suggest from their portfolios, since I enjoyed looking at all of your portfolios.
Feel free to send me additional suggestions as you upload new images and take a look at the expanded collection now that I've added additional images....(More)

About me

Since my grandmother put a camera in my hands at the age of six, I've been hooked. Curiosity and passion for new experiences keep me from narrowing my work to one specialty so I shoot just about everything. My portraits and travel photographs have graced the cover of various local and regional magazines and newspapers and have appeared in national publications here in my native USA to as far away as Russia. Since I started shooting stock photographs a couple of years ago, I have split my time between taking photos for my editorial, advertising and individual clients and giving myself ass... [Read more]
