I just started abstract painting. Previously I was not open to this at all. My attitude towards this style has changed completely because I understand better when a painting is really good: that is not necessarily in the perfect and detailed representation of a subject, but rather in conveying a feeling. With abstract work you bring that feeling without the support of a recognizable form. If it is a good painting, you will continue to look and determine the subject and the value yourself.
