    Definitely can't 'get' talent - lawd knows I've tried. LOL
    I agree to some extent, but not fully. A natural skill in visual arts is needed in order to have the ability to produce beautiful works. However, a natural skill can most definitely be improved and honed through education and practice.

Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Very true! You can improve your already existing abilities with lessons - like "practice makes perfect"
    Or vise versa: you can take your abilities and crap on them by not practiciing and exercising them at all.

    Re: Abstract Art

    I personally love abstract art. I like art that is open to interpretation.

    Re: Abstract Art

    Im a classically trained artist (degree) who happens to enjoying doing abstract art.
    I like breaking rules but, I still use formal qualities while creating my art.

    Re: Abstract Art

    I like most abstract art as long as it's not post-modern. I think most post-modern art is garbage that has no message or controversy. If I can't see the intended message in the art piece without reading a two page writeup about it, then it's not working. If I can't even imagine what the message could be because the art is so post-modern then I have zero interest.
