Three Opinions on Abstract Art

There is no abstract art. You must always start with something.  Afterward you can remove all traces of reality.

Pablo Picasso

Henry David Thoreau

Abstract art: a product of the untalented sold by the unprincipled to the utterly bewildered.

Al Capp

  2. I like your abstract art photos – very creative, although I think they’d make me a little dizzy if I looked too long. I’m often one of the bewildered so the Al Capp quote made me laugh! Visiting from WQ today.
