NEWLook Finishes by Crystal
Hi, I am a newbie on Houzz. Just wanted to introduce myself and share this quote-- What makes good art? Answers from Art world Pros. This particular answer stuck with me; wonderfully described,
" Good art is timeless. It will assume a new relevance to each generation, and to yourself as you grow. It will connect to the past and feed the future. It has a simple and rigorous beauty that commands your gaze and thoughts whenever you look at it. The best work will break your heart. As a collector, you will know it when you see it. It's personal. You will not have to be convinced by anyone to acquire it; it will be something you simply must have. It is like a good marriage that completes a feeling inside you, something that lasts forever and grows with time. "

Abstract art is definitely classic - and doesn't have to look like it belongs in a doctor's office!

Some of my favorite pieces on GalleryDirect.com are abstract works - like this one by Bob Hunt:
