Abstract art was revolutionary a century ago… but what about now?

Sorry, but I see it this way: abstract art = designers’ showcase. Easy on the eyes, easy on the color scheme of the room. I flunked out as an art major in college because I refused to do any abstract. I’m sure my professors meant well. (I dropped painting and became a writer instead.)

Now that I’ve started painting again, I keep some store-bought canvases (I usually stretch my own) as my garbage bins. Whenever I have some excess paint on my brush, I smear the garbage bin canvas with it.

Some results: (One is inadvertently figurative, eh?)
