Abstract paintings raises many questions. How can something that represents nothing in particular be so eye-catching to look at? If you have once said, "That is easy to paint...who would pay that significant amount of money for something that doesn't even relate to anything?" then chances are you do not appreciate what abstract art really is. When looking at this type of paintings, you are seeing the most freely formed type of artwork an artist can create.
You would think that when looking at art that is non-representational, it would be less interesting to view as you do not know what the artist is truly trying to depict in his or her artwork. This is where the beauty of abstract art comes about. This type of art is meant to grab your attention and pull an emotional response right from within you. Once you see that part of the painting...the part that keeps you drawn in, keep your mind thinking, it is then when you know you are analyzing something special...something called abstract art.
