There are two art forms that the general public frequently resents: abstract painting and poetry. I think it’s because artists and writers receive acclaim and fame for doing something that appears relatively vague and easy to do.

Out of curiosity, I tried my hand at abstract painting, and thus produced, Abstract Number 1.

The challenges in creating an abstract painting arise from the number of variables. They include color, style, texture, spontaneity, and arrangement, among others. It was both fun and frustrating playing with all. Unfortunately I can't get a good photo reproduction of the painting and its texture.
