The abstract paintings I’ve been working on over the past week have energized my creative juices. One leads to another and I’ve got lots of new ideas for more. I love paintings that cause you to want to reach out and touch them!
Speaking of touching a painting, have you ever been tempted to touch the art in a museum. When I was homeschooling The Director, we studied a unit about Auguste Rodin. The local museum had quite a few “Rodin” pieces so we went to visit. I was talking and teaching about the sculpture and I absent-mindedly touch it. The security guard approached me and asked me, very nicely, not to do that. I apologized. I went on talking about the sculpture and I did it again!! I touched it! It was like I couldn’t control myself! Once again, the security guard came over and I laughed and told him I was so sorry, he smiled and again reminded me not to touch. Finally, I had to move a safe distance from the statue in order to control myself.
I guess the point is, if you buy one of these abstracts, you’ll be able to touch them as often as you like! LOL!
