Evolve your art story

Recently I was at the Art Gallery of Ontario and lucky enough to have a “solo” tour as I was the only person who showed up. I learned more about the art I had shown an interest in, but thanks to the tour guide who pushed me beyond my comfort zone, I gained great insights about paintings that were otherwise just ‘not my scene’.

I noticed an amazing transformation going on within myself – I started to connect to those paintings.

Why? The story!

That got me thinking I need to work more on the story associated with my art. People generally find it hard to connect with abstract work, but story can help.

Of course, I want to leave the story open enough for the viewer to make sense of it for themselves rather than feed it to them on the plate – otherwise I would be painting realistically!
