Question #5 – Are there time periods of art that you respond to especially?

I have always liked the Impressionism era of art. I was first drawn into the art world through an Art History class I took in college in 1990. Previous to that class I had no knowledge whatsoever about art, artists, mediums or anything except contour drawing. The only art I had done formally (besides my own doodles) was in a high school art class which I have already written about in my piece called The Art Class. Clever title, huh? 😉

Anyway, my favorite artists who have done impressionism are Renoir, Van Gogh, and Monet. I have always liked the look of impressionism except when a painting is SO impressionistic that I can hardly figure out what it is! Then, to me, it may as well be an abstract, and I have never been a fan of abstract paintings. But that is probably because I am such a realist. That’s just me. I have liked other people’s abstract art, even Georgia O’Keeffe’s abstracts are interesting.

Have a great day, and give someone you love a hug! 🙂

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork and some writing, but I also created a blog called "My Crazy Life!" in order to simply write my short autobiography and hopefully get some feedback on it as I go. However, it is a very slow project right now. You can find it here: Thanks for visiting! :)

  1. I took an Art History course in college too, Patsy…might have been around that same time. Unfortunately, I didn’t take to it like you did. Probably because I had no artistic ability when it came to drawing or painting. 🙂


    • I didn’t either at that time. In fact, one of our assignments was to draw any tree in pencil, pen, and paint it in watercolors. I knew nothing about art supplies then, but that is part of what got me into trying to teach myself to paint in watercolors even though I didn’t do it much then at all. So did you ever get any art supplies and/or a book? 😉


      • I did get my pencils and a sketch pad and I’m embarrassed to say, they’ve been sitting on my desk for some time now.
        I’ve been taking an on-line writing course that has been time consuming and I’m trying to get the first 3 chapters of one of my novels in shape to submit for a critique.
        I also have several books that have been given to me by fellow bloggers, that I really want to read and feel guilty because I haven’t.
        I know, excuses, excuses…but there never seems to be enough time to do all that I want to do. As I mentioned in another comment, I’d love to learn photography…
        I will use those pencils, Patsy..I promise! 🙂


        • Wow! You are busy, Jill! I was just curious. Don’t feel pressured by any means. I have a big stack of books I found for free the other day that I plan on reading throughout the summer. I have paintings I’m trying to work on over the next couple of weeks for a booth I plan to have on the 24th, and things feel crazy! So I can relate! 🙂
