This one was done in my tiny sketchbook while in a hotel in Dallas. Lots of fun ^_^

I am losing respect in the "art" world because of this.
I know some people actually do find it interesting, but is someone literally just slopping paint on a giant canvas and sliding around in it (?!) worth spending thousands of dollars on and displaying like it's a big deal? What is the art world coming to when the museum guards have to actually tell you that some of the things that don't look like art actually are and that you shouldn't touch them? When you stick a square and a triangle on a yellow background on a giant canvas, and nothing else, and then claim that it's"simple yet complex" and that the shapes are "in dialogue with each other" and that they "create a peculiar energy," and I've seen 3-year-olds create things that are more impressive...it makes me wonder. I honestly believe (and certainly hope) that many of these people have true talent, but that it's stifled by the modern art culture. I feel like people aren't looking for beauty anymore, just uniqueness. And I feel like lots of people, people who don't see the "beauty" in black felt scattered randomly all over the floor (another exhibit at the DMA) don't see it for what it really is - felt scattered all over a floor - but as some creative, complex thing that they're not artistic enough to understand.
*Sigh* I'm done ranting now.
