My Art History 101

I’ve always enjoyed abstract art because no one can tell you what you’re supposed to see in it; you simply determine that for yourself.  I remember when I was a little kid, a huge abstract painting hung over the sofa in our family room.  I insisted that it was a painting of a white wolf […]
