Abstract Art: one artist's journey

Yesterday, I was admiring a piece of Abstract Art that had been hung on the wall of the office I was in. The Office Assistant saw me looking at it, and said, "So what do you see when you look at that picture? I always have trouble seeing anything in abstract art." As I left the office, I thought about this question for a long time. For me, as someone who loves creating abstract art, it is not usually about "seeing" something in the picture. Abstract art is an exploration of paint, and color and texture which gives each individual a different experience when looking at it. For some people, it will be a feeling like joy or peace. For others, it is the act of moving the eye around the painting to enjoy the subtleties of the variations of paint and texture. Abstract art is a visual language of shape, form, color and line. Abstract art requires you to have an open, inquiring mind; you must enter the painting and see where it takes you. Abstract art gives you the freedom to explore the artwork and assign your own meaning to the piece. This intensely personal process enriches a viewer's experience of an artwork, and possibly their experience of life itself. In creating an abstract painting, it is my hope that our minds will take a rest from the world and simply enjoy the moment.......
