Aesthetic – Daily Prompt

What is aesthetically beautiful to one person, may not be so to another.  My husband & I have very different aesthetics, he likes old, traditional, familiar things, I prefer abstract, modern, alternative things, something that’s “different” and new and makes you see things in a new way

I have been selling my art online for many years and I remember showing my husband some of my more abstract works over the years and remember him saying “I don’t get it”…it didn’t make sense to him…he couldn’t visualize what I was seeing.  His “literal” vantage point didn’t allow him to think or see outside the box

I think for the most part “life” is the same way.  We only see things from our limited perspective and viewpoint.  What is beautiful and endearing to one, is chaotic and a mess to someone else

I always loved Abstract artists like Kandinsky growing up, his work fascinated me from a very young age…I loved trying to see things from his viewpoint, what was going on in his mind when he created certain pieces
