For a painting to be “enjoyed”, it normally results in an emotion or feeling for the viewer. Ultimately people are attracted to a painting because of its emotion.
Abstract paintings for a number of reasons can be very emotional! They can look very simple, but often, they are not easy.
Talented abstract artists understand the effective use of colour, form, plane and balance to achieve emotion in their work.
By creating art, it helps me select art , since I clearly understand the talent and skill that is required to complete a painting with good/emotional composition. When I purchase art, from other artists, I seldom only pay for “the brand name”. The work also has to be good and among the best from the artist.
All of the paintings that I produce are created in less than 1 hour using only the 3 primary colours plus white and while listening to music. I choose a song for each painting and then essentially “paint the song”! I limit myself to a short time to produce a painting so that it is produced with purely emotion.
This painting was a collaboration with Georges Loranger and myself. He created a black and white painting and I finished the painting.
