Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. – Mark Twain
Today is a good day to be alive. I have no formal training in art but I have learned by reading books and watching how to videos. I think everyone has artistic ability's but some are more inclined and have raw natural tallent than others. In my opinion taste and talent are two different things. Just because you put some blue circles and some red strawberry shaped blobs on paper and call it abstract you are really not that talented. On the other hand if you develop your abstract art to be consistent and you can evoke a feel out of a painting or a person from looking at that painting then you have talent. You can have great talent but pick objects or use styles that don't appeal to most people, that is fine to but for just anyone to throw some paint on paper and say that its “fine art” is not really what I'm interested in. I do try to make amazing pieces of art, sometimes I let it flow and is quite free, other times I am almost militant in the way I want lines and shapes to form and the shading must be perfect. Once I repainted a hill in a panting eight different times because I was not happy with any of previous ones all to be mostly covered by pine trees that grew in front of the hills. I hope that I can evoke a feeling out of you when you see my art. I do have a lot of different feels and styles but I also understand that my style, technique and subjects are not for everyone, but I do think that you will be able to appreciate that there is a certain amount of effort/energy that is in my art. Some of my art pieces take a part of my with it, as I use a brush I transform my movements into a sunset. I mix paint, my brain calculates the shading and structure of the reference picture, I use hand eye coordination to move my hand and wrist to twist and pull and mash the bristles onto the canvase to produce an image that evokes a feeling or emotion, that my friends is truly magical. I thank you for looking at my art, my interpretations, my energy transformed. Thank You! - Christopher
