My mother-in-law used to take me and my young sons to the Museum of Fine Art and the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. I used to buy note cards of famous painting to take home and frame. Little did I know that it was Abstract Expressionism that I was drawn to. I discovered this years later when I was on a search committee for an art history faculty member at the college where I teach. Their teaching demo was on the topic "Abstract Expressionism."

So here's my take on Abstract Expressionist art in bright blues, turquoise and purples - use your imagination - it could be the night sky, the ocean...whatever you see in it.

Thank you for taking a look at my art and my blog. I'd love to hear your feedback.

Your abstract expressionist painting is lovely. It exhibits an emotion and conveys a sense of well being to me.
Thank you for sharing this piece.
I am waiting to see more of your thoughts on canvas.
