Day 259 – What is Art?

Art Apple - Day Two Hundred Fifty NineArt is not a thing; it is a way. – Elbert Hubbard

I’ve often pondered the question “what is art?” – as I’m sure most artists and critics do at some time. And although everyone seems to have an opinion – I see no consensus. Some days my art has meaning, some days it is strictly to feel the hand touch the paper, but everyday – it is a way.

Until tomorrow.


Day 259 was created with a piece of my latest test blotter paper (a place where I check colors before adding them to my pieces as well as testing and flowing pens) as well as a cut out shape of an apple shaded with my index finger prints (for my Dad) and a leaf shaped just so and “colored” with green pastels.

    I’m waiting for your Dad to fill in the backstory on the fingerprints. Should be interesting.

    My simple take on art…Art is expression, and Jenna does it so well.
