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! 🙂
