I may be 'vintage' but my art appeals...

...to my DD's high school friend! She liked all my paintings, she was in 'AWE' looking at my paintings, even the paintings I do not like, I was so flattered! I know my art doesn't appeal to other artists because it is either: Not professional enough or because of the subject matter or both. That doesn't bother me any because I have the younger generation on my side. She was visiting because her father was having laser eye surgery. I told her to pick out a picture she likes and I will paint it for her. She liked ALL OF IT, unbelievable.

Here is a sampling:

i dont know how they cant appeal to all- as they are so well painted and no one can take that away from you- well done.

Re: I may be 'vintage' but my art appeals...

I see your art as , well of a dreamy quality, very much Like your user name Floaty .....while it may not be the realist or painterly style I'm mostly about .... It doesn't mean I can't like and love the things I see in it .... I'm a fan of your extensive use of color ....keep painting what works for you...

These have a wonderful Bob Ross quality. I like them a lot, and would like to see you paint from a subject not in your head - you'd make some beautiful paintings

Re: I may be 'vintage' but my art appeals...

You may want to have a look at the painter Joseph Mallord William Turner.

Here is a link to some of his work.

Re: I may be 'vintage' but my art appeals...

Kate-Thanks a bunch.

Alexandra-You are to sweet for words.

dafy-Bob Ross rocks! Only a couple of my paintings are from my imagination, most are from viewing the masters and going my own way with them.

Freesail-Thanks for the link, one of the paintings I did on this page was from using Turner's work and I turned it around into my own.

Yep your swirls reminded me of him, why I made the suggestion. He was one of the first artist that I can think of to bridge what is almost abstract with representational art

What a complement, I think it was a complement. Thank you. I like Turner's moody paintings; in my mind, as you mentioned, I equate swirls with mood, lol. The art 'terms' I don't get very well, but, I do know the new generation of kids today like 'different'...

Edit again-
There are so many grey areas between the art 'terms'...

I was painting for a couple of hours, thank you for your permission to tell me to paint. A couple of hours working on trees.

FloatingDove - Bob Ross definitely rocks! He is the main reason I became a painter. And I agree, go paint, we need to see more from you

Wow, can't believe it dafy. Speaking of Bob Ross, his squirrels rock too. Idea: Insert a squirrel somewhere into the painting I am working on now...

LOL ok please don't do that.

I don't know if I liked BR more because of his freedom with painting, or his monk-like demeanour. All I know is he always made me feel at peace

A small one in one of the trees...in honor of BR, lol. I wish I had his peaceful demeanor, mine is so agitated these days. Kids will do that. Pets too, come to think of it. Especially DOGS who Know that the bathroom is outside.

I don't have kids. But my two kitties Pebbles and BamBam are 75% peace, 25% holy terror to me

I'm quite agitated often myself, but I find most of it comes from myself, I am my own worst enemy. Maybe I should be painting squirrels, myself
