I came across this site a while ago, but now they either added more pictures (hidden behind a black arrow), or I did not notice it the first time. Anyway, thought I should share this link... I am not a big fan of abstract painting, but these pictures mysterioulsy resonate with something in me. There is some deep harmony in her colors and shapes, more than I've ever seen.

They *are* good for abstract art. This one I would stop to look at for more than 5 minutes. (The rest remind me of patchwork after a while- sorry I don't get Picasso either).

I like paintings that suggest movement and life. I wonder if you can use black and white only to appreciate movement and life on a serious note. Cartoons and carricatures end up being funny.
I like this one,too, for the above reason.

The first one is beginning to take on Tolkienesque qualities.

Looks like something first graders would paint.

Interesting. I also love her "black-and-white" pictures, but I thought it's because this is pretty much how Russia looks like in winters.
Here is one I like:

I missed that one. That's cool.
This painting is nice too.
A banana plantation.

She also has some work that reminds me of Bushmen art. Reminds me of some beautiful silk paintings I picked up near the Kalahari for a few quid. Never hung them up, though, as I never found the right place for them.

I would describe them as "trivial".

Umm, I would not thank God for it, unless you think that being "normal" is a virtue.
