First, I'd like to start off by saying, hello y'all. I've been doing digital abstract for the last 7 years, to me personally, there is no wrong or right.
There is only forward in what you can create for consumers and gazers. Some will like, others won't, but there is a story of poetry in every piece of art. If it catches your attention, then you're already considering the story of the piece, and everyone will arrive at their own conclusion to what the artist was trying to convey. That is why I like abstract, because you the gazer has to put a story to the piece, and you're able to let your mind wander into dimensions you never would have thought existed in your thoughts.
All artwork is like a novel or poem, you have to read between the lines at the unspoken word of what the writer isn't showing or telling you. So in art, you have to decipher the colors, the curves, the stokes, what could be added but was left out, and why. Art is a mystery that is so beautiful and pure, yet can be misleading by the title. Do you believe the title of art, or was it meant to be called something else. Only you can decide this, as you let your mind run with the, what and what if's. What was the mood of the artist? Is it that simple, no.
I can also be found on www.josephwhanlon.com for a more in depth personal look at me, and the person I am. I hope to see you there too, it is a visual site not selling anything. It's a site to wet your eyes gaze, that will lead you to other sites I am on like this one.
I hope you enjoy your stay here as you walk through the pages. And I keep my fingers crossed, knock on air, wood burns, that you find a piece that interests you. Fine art America does such a tremendous job in what they do, I can guarantee that you'll like and enjoy any purchase you make, and if not, you have that 30 day window to return it, no questions asked. Now that's good business. Not the same as walking into an art store gallery where all sales are finale.
And remember, artwork isn't like a tattoo, you can take it down and replace it with something else depending on your mood, not that there's anything wrong with tattoos. I personally love them. I have about 30 of them, but I wish I could get rid of some. But the purchase of a tattoo is finale and stays with you for life.
So, I personally want to thank you for stopping by.
sincerely, Joseph W. Hanlon
