Daily Prompt – The Artist’s Eye

Is there a painting or sculpture you’re drawn to? What does it say to you? Describe the experience. (Or, if art doesn’t speak to you, tell us why.)

Okay, first of all, how can you not like art. I suppose there are those who don’t, but it adds so much to life.

It’s hard to pick just one because there is so much that I like. I seem to lean more towards the abstract and modern. More zeitgeist oriented. Impressionism, expressionism, abstract-expressionism, vorticism, cubism, etc. I’m a fan of Mark Rothko. Also Pollock. Not too hip on Dali. Although, I do like some surrealism…like Grosz.

I think I lean more towards Monet and Manet. There’s something about Monet. Maybe the dream-like quality of impressionism. Plus, I like his subject matter.
