Tom Robertson (American: 1911-1976): " # 20", watercolor, ca. 1940. In the late 1930s and 1940s abstraction was generally ridiculed and diminished in the American art scene, yet, even in primarily conservative Arkansas, Robertson painted his personal vision and explored the works of Kandinsky, Surrealism and other "modern" European schools.
Around 1940 Robertson had an exhibition of his abstractions at the Little Rock Public Library. A review from the time of his watercolor #32 (similar to #20) attempted to help the public understand: .
"What does this picture mean? Exactly what you feel it means....In looking at a non-objective painting the viewer should disassociate all objective ideas from his mind and feel the painting emotionally."
"'The nearest approach to an explanation of non-objective painting' Mr. Robertson says 'lies in a comparison with....symphonic works, such as those of Brahms. At the first hearing, you may not like the music because you have no emotional reaction. But the fifth or sixth hearing the music will begin to tell you something....In what it tells you lies the value of the music....As in non-objective painting, the mood should be left to you to create'"

Not sure about my form here but Pilates this morning was so rewarding. It’s truly amazing how much my attitude and outlook on life has changed in almost 3 weeks. I’m HAPPY 😊 I’m excited for the future and I know things wont always feel like this, but I’m willing to continue to work hard for myself and my future. For me, it was easy to lose sight of my goals and dreams and push them to the side, I’m making a conscious decision to not do that. Don’t lose sight of what you want and work hard for it. Nothing comes really easy and if it does, you eventually have to put in work to keep it. Hope everyone is having a wonderful Monday! #SantaRosaCalifornia#homeworkouts#dontbelazy#noexcuses#dontbeanasshole#bekind#morningroutine#lovetoyouall#💕💘

It is times like these where we need to be there for one another, love your neighbor, lend a helping hand in whatever way you may. We can’t rely on the President, Congress, or even a Boss to be there for us. We as people need to be there for one another. •
