Expressions through Abstract Art and Color will lighten up not only museums but also places of residence. Colors provoke emotions in us humans.
Abstract Artist Marie Digby
Reader: Why does he always bring up the word humans?
Blogger response: Humans have a heart of sensitivity and love to appreciate people and culture. Since you are a regular reader here, are you not this type of human?
Okay, back to “Colors provoke emotions in YOU.”
This is a wonderful gift we have in life. Look at a flower right now. Even if you are presently sitting in a comfy chair with no flowers around, I’m very sure you can pull up a jpg of a flower on your electronic device.
Okay, let me help by providing you with this one. You knew I would do this for you; didn’t you?
What emotions were or are provoked in you? Well, I tell you now, I see beautiful, totally beautiful. Don’t you too? Could you imagine anyone having anything negative to say about this beautiful wild orchid blossom?
There you have it, the positive influence of color.
Colors in Abstract Art
Let us talk about Abstract art. Abstract art uses color in a way that does not always have a point of reference. For example, one person may look at a masterpiece of abstract art and see a form of a human, yet the artist is/was not limited to the body’s real proportion sizes. The shapes and forms may be readily seen and understood, or not. But here is the point. Abstract art is enigmatic at times; however, you often see the imaginations free use of colors in various shapes and forms.
Interviewing an Artist
I had a chance to talk with an abstract artist. Tracey B. is an empathetic person who is highly respected by the people she works with and manages. Since she is constantly giving out instruction and encouragement to others, what is something that gives her joy in and of itself? You know; personal time.
Autumn River by Tracey B.
Tracey’s face lights up as she relates how from an early age she loves expressing herself through art.
Her artistic tool of choice is Acrylic paint. Tracey explained to me all about the consistencies of Acrylic paint, and for the sake of refreshing my thoughts on what Tracey explained to me in detail on the subject, I went to Wikipedia. Will this information also help you?
Acrylic paint is a fast-drying paint containing pigment suspension in acrylic polymer emulsion. Acrylic paints are water-soluble but become water-resistant when dry. Depending on how much the paint is diluted with water, or modified with acrylic gels, media, or pastes, the finished acrylic painting can resemble a watercolor or an oil painting, or have its own unique characteristics not attainable with other media.-https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acrylic_paint
Tracey according to her experience says acrylic paints are inexpensive and easy to work with.
Tracey’s Expressions through Art and Colors
Tracey loves colors! All kinds of colors! She expresses herself through color and different mediums. Pastel, nail polish and even glitter glue; to name a few.
One thing we continue to see in culture is how people express themselves; for example, musicians sing and artists paint. Imagine for a moment if someone like Tracey didn’t have this way of expressing her heart. Would she still be the same person people love to spend time with at play and work? Yes, most people would still enjoy her company.
All the same, this additional question comes to mind.
Presented in this article is a small gallery of work from Tracey. She has a lot of paintings. But you know how this Product of Culture website appreciate authenticity:
“Please share which paintings have meant the most to you throughout your life?”
Tracey’s reply: “These are the ones I made some time back when I was going through a lot of transitions in my life.”
Tracey overcame obstacles that some of the readers may be able to discern in her artwork.
Just how much more Tracey’s personality is alive because she is able to express this God given artistic talent in personal time?
Keep this in mind, one of the joys of culture and life is how these different God-given talents may move us to take time out alone. Then, when such ones have stretched their petals of imagination, they return to share and beautify the whole community.
Everyone has a gift to share with others to make them happy. Let us continue to be appreciative of one another. Yes, culture is like an infinite museum you never want to leave, but you are still very happy because you can return again and again.
Wild Orchid Blossom
Remember the wild orchid blossom (Marie Digby painting now featured) near the beginning of this article? I will wait for you to take a look at it one more time. Now remember how the colors of this flower filled you with positive feelings. Take this feeling with you whether you are a skilled painter, or skilled in many of the enthralling occupations and hobbies in life. One thing is for certain; we experience life through colors so let us continue to look at all colors of expression for the value they can provide us in art, in life, and with a genuine smile.
