Reactions to Art

Reactions to my artwork have frequently been surprising. What a person likes or sees in an artwork can be very unpredictable and comments tend to be interesting. They can range from the view on an abstract painting, "I could do that!" (made by someone who feels that she or he has no artistic talent) to the grandmother who cried when she saw the commissioned portrait of her granddaughter because she loved it so much.

One of the things that I like about abstract and non-representational paintings is that they tend to provoke thought and creativity within the viewer.
