Lost in Translation’s Thursday’s Special
guest challenger Suzanne at Art and Life has this prompt for us


My entry is maybe a bit of a cheat as it is not really an abstract photo.
It is a photo of a mixed media abstract painting I have in my guest room.
It was one of the first things I bought for my condo twenty years ago.


It seems every time I look at it I see something different.
Often what I see depends on my mood
or what is happening in my life.

I am sorry I don’t know who the artist is so I cannot
give credit where credit is due.
If anyone does know email me and I will acknowledge him/her here.

  1. Interesting choice – I first saw a face, then ships’ sails, then trees, a board for checkers… in fact, I could be here all day, looking at it. (smile)

    1. I haven’t seen ships sails yet but faces, trees and checkers I have. And a window with a curtain blowing, someone walking on a street, a cat, a piano keyboard,…I have had years to discover things.

  2. I don’t think I understand the concept of an abstract photo. Photos are realistic by definition, aren’t they? I love the painting though – I can see how you could see different things in it at different times. Have a great weekend! 🙂

    1. I guess that’s what made this a challenge. To take reality and skew it. The weekend is starting out great. My Celebrate the Small Things post tells about how it started.

  3. I don’t have much interest in abstract art, but there are some that really stand out. It is true that you see something different each time you view abstracts.

  4. I don’t think it’s cheating either. Challenges become interesting when people take them and interpret them in their own way. I can see why you find the painting fascinating – it so layered.

  5. I don’t consider it cheating at all. On the contrary. I only wish I could zoom in on the image. It looks fascinating. Thank you kindly Patricia!

    1. Well, I am glad I didn’t cheat though it sorta feels that way to me. The painting is interesting. I usually don’t like abstracts but this one speaks to me.

        1. There are a lot of small “distractions”. I like to sit and look at it and see what I will find in it. Abstracts are not my first choice of art but I do like this one.
