Jasper Sparks looked at the tattered blade in his hands and felt afraid.

He walked over to the window and reflected on his windy surroundings. He had always hated dusty Dodge with its tattered, silent shacks. It was a place that encouraged his tendency to feel afraid.

Deep colors ignite the twilight dawn,
like a fire in the sky my soul glows.

My mind is on one thing,
the beauty of this morning.

Along the path of being in the present,
my breathing soul is soaring.

Abstract art shouldn’t represent realism or clear images of reality. Observing abstract art is interpreted differently to each viewer. And with freedom from rigid meaning

Abstract art vs. realism.

The role of abstract art is to journey outside the world of reality. And venture into creative shapes, colors, and forms. This viewing is a new appreciation of visual art. The role of realism art is to depict actual events. And situations with factual authenticity. That representation can be brutal, cold, or warm, and wonderful.

Next, we will go into a description of abstract and realism art. Please remember these are very general.

Abstract art has an absence of detail and subject material. It could be simple shapes or no shapes this depending on the art piece. …

Quote from Jasper;

“Tomorrow is a brand new day. The skies will be tranquil blue. And a bright yellow sunrise shining like a kaleidoscope in the canyon. And the Cimarron flowing crystal clear and cold,

happy trails my amigo.”
