3. Beautiful! So graceful, clearly drawn and subtley colored--even with the complementary colors.

It feels like an expert illustration in an early twentieth century book.

Did you draw this recently?

8. I drew it 30 years ago

Right now Iím really stuck on a painting. I think itís because of the pandemic. Inspiration is pretty secondary for me. But the need for reaching out to share something good about good things we do seems important.

14. It seems to remind people of design elements.

I hadnít ever seen that and itís pretty old. I drew it 30 years ago.

It shows how important it is to get feedback. Thanks!

17. Turn it upside down and see if you can unsee what you don't

Want to see.

There was a very important era in my painting when I went full Abstract Expressionism which some people who didnít paint wanted to figure out what it was supposed to be. For some reason they insisted on seeing an object in the paintings. They simply couldnít understand what abstract art is. It was frustrating so I understand what you mean.

18. boy howdy.

 

i bet that would work, too. i was a 'drawing on the right side of the brain' fan. actually heard the author speak at art school. truly fascinated w the human brain.

even tho my sculpture is far more literal, people still can only see through the lens they have. goes double for the big sister who was #2 when you are the family weirdo.
even the ones who can make the leap that it is about emotion and not matter seem to have their own dark lens that only sees the painful bits of the work. never catch the heart.

19. Your paintings are a success if people see something about themselves

in your abstract art. Everyone reacts with what they know. Perhaps the ones who donít see the heart simply donít understand the nature of their path. They see pain as the end all with nothing on the other side of the human journey. Yet what they see is where they are in self discovery.

So count your abstract art as a success. In spite of your sister!

21. I never thought of that

But now that I see what you mean I can imagine how nice it would look with light going through it. A few people in this thread pointed out the design element it has. Iím very happy that I posted it because now I see something totally new in it. Thanks!
