A is for Art


A Beautiful Philadelphia Skyline 20" x 30" Painting


The definition of art is a debate I’d rather not get involved with.  Is architecture art?  How about the art of negotiating?  In my opinion life and everything in it is art.  Hell, I’m from Philadelphia, put an Italian Hoagie or Cheese Steak in front of me and I’m going to tell you they are works of art.

I’ve chosen art as my theme for the A to Z challenge for a reason.  I personally am not a writer and therefore I am out of my league in this challenge.  Most of my fellow challenge members are writers.  That being said I do have some interesting opinions and comments about how one should pursue their love for art and will be presenting my own rules and theory’s on the subject no matter what your passion is.

If you’re a writer, photographer, painter or stained glass maker hopefully my rules will help you out.  Of course I'll be providing one of my digital paintings each day to.

I love the reflection of light on the buildings!

I think your theme will be a nice change from writing themes :)

Hurray!! Another artist! This is a lovely piece and a great start to the #atozchallenge. I'm so happy to see another visual person. Will be back!

Gorgeous painting!

Silvia Villalobos said...

A great choice indeed. Probably the best. Without art, life is too gray and boring. Nothing to lift the spirit.
Way to start the Challenge!

Art is so subjective that it is sometimes best to leave it undefined. Personally, I am of the opinion that anything that is created can be considered art.

That being said, I look forward to reading about your rules! And I love the digital painting!

That painting is gorgeous. Calming. I'm a writer, yes, but I'm also a photographer. I'll enjoy your theme quite a bit, as I have a lot to learn in photography. And yes, I think architecture is art. I can get lost in an old building or a modern building that's different.
