thoughts on art; abstract plein air

I regard this as a fine abstract landscape. It is from this point that the painting gets developed in an attempt to accomplish something that is a representation of nature. One that gives comfort to those that need to know what they are looking at is familiar and perhaps safe, in-as-much-as art goes. It is at this point that there are paths to less comfortable but more insightful opportunities. Opportunities that fulfill aesthetic and even spiritual truths. After all, the pursuit of art is a personal adventure if one is to pursue ,should aspire to more than a mundane fabrication of a material product. Whoa! Is that a little too much?

Material products may be a bi product of the artist's longing for being captured by the spirit of the great creator through the process of creation.
Whoa! is that a little too much?
All creative beings do the same thing leaving us fruits of their labors, flowers of their fancy, children of their dreams.
Just keep creating and all of creation will stand smiling on the sidelines tapping its foot to the little tune you are whistling.
