New Abstract Painting: Which Way Is Up?
Have you ever looked at an abstract piece of art and not been sure which side was supposed to be the top?
I painted this painting that I finished today with a definite opinion about what the top was, but when I looked at it finished, I thought, Hmmm, that could work another way.
I thought this way looked ok too. And then...
I asked my oldest son which side he thought was the top, and he turned it around this last way. When my 11 year old daughter came home from school, I asked her, and she said that it definitely was supposed to go the way I had painted it in the first place.
What do you think??
By the way, we discovered that a painting by Matisse was hung upside down in the Museum of Modern art in New York, for 47 days...or about 116,000 views. !
