Full Steam Ahead by Victoria Kloch, 24"x36" acrylic on canvas
Some people think that you can just throw some paint on a canvas and call it an abstract. Abstract art is defiantly misunderstood. I can't even begin to count on my fingers how many times I've heard off handed comments about abstracts saying 'Even I can do this finger painting.' and I'm thinking to myself, 'Yeah? Why aren't you?'
You wouldn't think so but with abstracts one small detail can throw the whole thing off. Every time I looked at this piece, there was just something that bugged me and I could't immediately put my finger on it, but I knew it still needed something. Ah-ha, there it is. Fixed. Now I feel I can let it go.
