What is your favorite… January 3, 2020

What is your favorite work of art? What do you love about it?

I don’t have a favorite piece of art. I like Van Gogh’s Starry Night! I also like Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte by Georges Seurat! I’ve tried to understand art but I don’t think I appreciate it as well as others do. I like the colors and the feelings evoked when looking at a piece of art but I am not sure that is enough. I once dated (!) a woman who was an art enthusiast and at times I know I frustrated her with my rudimentary understanding of what we saw at galleries or museums. I wasn’t offended because she was right, I don’t understand symbolism. I took AP Art History in high school and I still couldn’t tell you what certain colors or arrangements mean. By the way, buildings are art? Really?! Anyway, I don’t have a favorite piece of art but I do like staring at it even though I probably wouldn’t do a good job discussing it.

Sharing is caring!
