-focused on the patterns and shapes

-abandoned shading or forms Why did I pick this? -I love the concept of:

simple, clean-cut lines and shapes in a painting

ordinary individual characteristics being able to convey different messages to each individual

artwork allowing the admirer to think in the point of view of the artist as to why they painted each piece and their inspiration for their artwork

the seemingly “easy” or straightforward pieces that may require much more time and thought to develop than more technical pieces such as those in realism. What is it? -artwork created based on one's own mindset and not on a real figure or object.
