What is painting for me?

I will start with the definition of Art: Art is the quality, production, or expression of what is beautiful, appealing, and or more than ordinary significance.

So ....   as you can see, art like beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

To me art is more like a melody.  Yes, some works of art can be like music.
When you know about art, your eyes can go around a composition like a melody, when colors are well thought and the design is flawless. There is so much that goes into a work of art. There are tones of “rules” to follow to produce a good piece. From the Harmony of the colors, to the placement of the composition in general. As well as the idea behind it.

It is not just picking up a brush and draws something. It is so much more than that. To me art is a melody, a dance of sorts, a conversation.
