Abstract paintings tend to name themselves as

Taking the time with a painting has big rewards, for then
one can hear the song that it is singing. A mentor has taught me
that one cannot rush a painting....
When I go to a gallery and see new work from other artists, I will have
to hear a song from it to know if it attracts and pleases me.
How about you?
