Have you ever wondered how different today’s abstract art is from some of the famous abstract artists that are now very collectible? When you look at some of today’s art it doesn’t seem all that different than centuries ago. Perhaps some of this is because many artists study art history and are greatly influenced by artists of the past.
Sometimes I wish I knew more art history, but at the same time, I am happy to be evolving in my own direction. Sometimes when I start a painting I am sure of the direction but my hand takes over and the end result is not what I might have intended.
