What is the point of art?

For several years now, I have just been posting images of my paintings without writing much about them. I think I need to change this. I need more writing. I haven't done much writing because I never thought of myself as a writer and imagined that my paintings spoke for themselves. But they probably don't, at least on the internet. I may start a whole new blog where I discuss color or try to figure out what the point of art is. The attached images are four 6" square paintings that I am working on. They are a departure for me - into the realm of abstract - with no source material outside of my own mind. Comment if you think you know what the point of art is. Ann

I am continuing to paint in the genera but next I will be doing some abstract works and some close up pictures of dead things on the beach.

RESURRECTION - WATER SHIELD #115 & #116 oil on linen 6"x6" 2014 This series is all about finding color and beauty in unexpected places. The water shield is a little floating plant in a pond near my house. I paint these pictures because I want to show everyone the beauty that I find there.
