What do people like?

I just came back from the Small Works show reception at the Blue Door Gallery in Yonkers which includes 6 of my small watercolors: one very realistic painting of Riverdale kids creating a snowman, one realistic but sorta abstract watercolor of a Bermuda roof silhouetted against the sky, and four real abstracts.

I watched people looking at my paintings and asked which was their favorite. [My favorite was “Jade Donut” not because it’s a better painting…I just like the colors.] They all picked an abstract as their favorite.

Velly interesting, as they say.  I would have bet that most people would have gone for the realistic painting, Riverdale Snowman.

Shows you what I know.  Is this a trend?  Beats me.

But, my hair is still curly.
