Abstract art is tough to do! That was the theme for today's Art lesson. We were supposed to clear our minds of images, & draw from our emotions & translate them on to our canvases.
How many of us have, while wandering through an Art museum or exhibit, exclaimed, "Even I can do that." over a seemingly simple piece of abstract art? I plead guilty to having done so before. It's not that easy, I realise now.
First of all, it was difficult for me to "visualise" my feelings & translate them into a painting. I am too used looking at things "just as they are". Everything looks like Still Life to me. My right brain hasn't been exercised enough.
I ended up taking home an incomplete piece of Art (I hesitate to use this word to describe it :)). I am hoping that I will feel inspired to finish it at home - not sure how long that will take...keeping fingers crossed...
