Emotion in Art – Three Anxious Birds


An emotion in art can be created by reminding us of somewhere or someone and representational art does that all the time.


To create an emotion, a feeling, in abstract art depends on such things as colour, shapes, and ... a powerful element - symbols.


These three abstract paintings use a symbolic bird to create an emotion. Each one has a title and that can key in the reaction, but it may be the wrong title for you. I respect that and never fail to be amazed and intrigued by how we all can react so differently.


Here come the "birds" ...
