There is a certain soothing aspect of art, especially when we allow ourselves to feel the vulnerabilities of our human frailty. Art has the ability to reach in and touch those vulnerabilities and give us wings. It is an expression of the artist, one that we can feel within ourselves, if we give it a chance. Art evokes a response. It does not have to be a happy response, it can be an angry response, but it touches the humanity… if we let it.
Now, these are simple designs, that may or may not speak to anyone but me. Well, they must have said something to my instructor since I received a good grade. LOL. But, they don’t need to speak. They can be passed by, or they can be admired. Some people like the art of Thomas Kinkade representing something beautiful remembered, experienced, or the experience of the art itself. Some people prefer the abstract cubism art of Picasso.
