Abstract art: a product of the untalented sold by the unprincipled to the utterly bewildered.
~ Al Capp
When is a puddle found along the Salt Marsh Trail in late winter not a puddle?
When it’s abstract art…
Of course abstract art always looks more at home in a gallery if it’s properly framed and given some non-descript title like Abstraction No. 34. The higher the number, the more the viewer is likely to believe that the starving ‘artist’ burned the candle at both ends to produce numerous versions before finally being satisfied with this particular rendition.
Alternatively, an entirely misleading title could lead the viewer down the garden path (or trail) into thinking that the puddle is something other than a puddle. Perhaps, a cup of cold coffee…
Whether or not you’re into abstract art, Nature’s Gallery is still featuring the best show in town. You might want to go outdoors and check it out for yourself.
