These watercolors are abstracted from nature and call attention to the forms and colors of the natural world. Patterns in nature become the focus and watercolor the medium to express

its beauty.


What is Abstract Art?

Rather than asking "What is the meaning?" of an abstract painting, one needs to consider how it actually affects him. Do you see something there? In some cases, what the viewer sees has no relation to the intention of the artist; however, that does not mean that one cannot ascribe their own meaning. Knowing something about the artist might also help with the enjoyment of the work. Just savoring the color or composition is a huge part of enjoying abstract art. Knowing that the artist intended the piece to be viewed and appreciated might also help you with ascertaining the "meaning" of the work. Additionally, abstract art adds vibrancy to a room.
