Black modern art

So the Color My World challenge is back and this week we're working with paint.
Remember, I figured I have enough color in my living room so I thought I'd go with black.
I have really been in a painting groove lately so I ditched the colorful bird prints from etsy and created two pieces of abstract art.
I just popped them into the existing frames.
I think it makes the space more grown up.
What do you think?
