That is what I ask myself. But that is MY way so each one has to decide for themselves, I guess.
The Zebras are stunning and I can see why that collector loves it in that beautiful space!

The ability to create 3d is wonderful, the ability to create a 3d effect on a 2d support to me is thrilling. The great thing? we all do things a bit differently!
it makes the world go round...happily.


As an example of art making you feel something, I just recently bought an oil painting from an artist that calls herself a whimsical artist. She has just recently been receiving a lot of notice and has a commission with a gallery.

She does indeed create some of the most beautiful whimsical art, and she does a series called Leaps in which she has very abstract color backgrounds of fantastic color and uses her children leaping or playing as models entering this colorful fantasy world.

I bought it because I instantly saw a highly emotional life experience in my recent past.in a cohesive story. It depicted positives and negatives of that experience that created a final reconciliation with the good and the bad of it.

This art to me, and every time I look at this painting I feel the chill and the warmth all over again.

That's such a great way to describe it! Makes me wish I could afford buy more art. My walls are so blank. Unless you think video games count as art and that's a whole nother discussion we can break open.

Yes, I would also agree, a whole nother discussion. Oh I bet you could come up with something to put on your walls, say a draped of batik with big black artificial spiders climbing?

I would love to know the definition of Fine Art. I was contacted by a gallery who said that my paintings were not 'fine art' enough. I asked them to explain but no reply (surprise, surprise).

Is it that it has to follow the traditional methods of painting? But then what about some abstract work? I find this so confusing. I have absolutely no idea which bracket my work falls in and wonder if others also have a problem putting it into a bracket. Does this leave my work without identity?



Could my work be described as decorative art? If that's the case, is that somehow perceived by galleries not as good as 'fine art'? Why else have the definition of 'fine' and thereby implying that it's better?

Would love your thoughts on this.


I would not consider this painting to be decorative art. I would consider it still art. With attention to detail, which for me, if the art is done properly makes me look closely to marvel at the beauty and art of nature.
How often do you think many people walk by these things and not give it a thought, To be in a moment you must be aware in the moment. We could all use some of that sort of calm in our lives, living art perhaps?
