said Wassily Kandinsky, “abstract painting is the most difficult. It demands that you know how to draw well, that you have a heightened sensitivity for composition and for color, and that you be a true poet. This last is essential.” In other words, the painting must have the fundamental components of good design.
My first sale was at the Waldrof Hotel in NYC. My friend brought me to the hotel and introduced me to an investor who later had a nervous breakdown and was transferred to Bellevue. The painting was carried through the famous lobby of the hotel back to my apartment. I was able to keep the payment for the painting. After that wild experience I was hooked as a fan of the bizarre and magical world of art.
