Last week I received a really nice compliment about my abstract paintings. One of the set decorators from the Disney pilot we were filming at our house told me that my abstract paintings were "happy paintings". She said the color and composition in my paintings clearly were uplifting and obviously were painted by a happy artist.
Apparently there is also a lot of "not happy" abstract art out there too. She explained there were a lot of "unhappy" abstract paintings such as the ones with all dark colors and "angry" brush strokes. She defined them as dark, troubling and confused. She did clarify that both styles were very good art but that buyers tastes usually like one or the other, not both.
I was surprised with her description but flattered as well. I am a happy artist. And I am glad I paint happy abstracts. Time to head off to my happy studio to happily create some happy art.
Life is good. Happy good.
