Crucially for me, I learned that appreciating Abstract Expressionist art begins with surrender, by allowing a painting to possess you. Once this occurs, you stop looking for symbols or messages or meanings and experience instead rhythm, energy, power, grace.

What a beautiful piece Kim. :) I love the movement in the circle shapes especially. And the color, always the color. And that quote is phenomenal. Because those words, rhythm, energy, power, grace, are always the ones that come to mind when I look at abstract expressionism like yours especially. I always thought I was just too simple to eek out any meaning, but I guess I wasn't. :D
This is absolutely delightful, Kim. I feel joy and celebration just gazing at it.
This is so lovely Kim! And it's a great quote too :0)
Thanks for your comment on my cows!
This is a favorite of your abstracts, and I love the quote! I think I will have to copy that, it took me a long time to understand that!
Glad you liked New Brunswick, a big escape for people here in Maine. We don't have tides as big, I heard when it comes in up there, it is fast, true? Looks beautiful!
Love it. I've been having internet issues since I got back. Fingers crossed they're solved. This is amazing!
the title is perfect as it is definately joyful
