Pretty Strong

Pretty Strong

While we were in Minnesota on spring break, I found out about an art competition called, “Art in Bloom.”  Artists submit paintings and floral designers make floral arrangements inspired by the paintings.  I’d heard about a similar Art in Bloom show at the Minneapolis Institute of Art, so I jumped at the chance to participate in one in my city.  I’m drawn to abstract art, so that’s what I’m currently focusing on.  The title for this painting was inspired by a quote I heard, that instead of focusing on being “pretty,” we should focus on being “pretty kind,” “pretty strong,” “pretty funny,” or “pretty smart.”  This painting is pretty because of the colors, but also strong because of the colors, shapes and textures.
