NOVEMBER LIVING ART ON THE EDGE

According to my online dictionary, Abstract Art is "...art that does not attempt to represent external reality, but seeks to achieve its effect using shapes, forms, colors and texture."

There have been many prominent abstract artists throughout time.  Among them are Picasso, Rothko, Frankenthaler, Miro, O'Keeffe to name a few.  Abstract art is a pull for me...that of others and for my own work.  A dear friend and I when traveling to Santa Fe's Canyon Road tend to choose those galleries with contemporary or abstract art rather than landscapes and still life.

This month I present to you three recent abstracts that I have created.  I hope you find them both interesting and appealing.
