Impressionist and Post-Impressionist "Motif"

Art as "Motifs of Real Life"...

My own art has always been influenced by the idea of "motif" and "real life".  Much of abstract, post-abstract, and "contemporary" art lacks these directions, ending up "full of sound and fury, signifying nothing", or worse, nothing but trivial decoration.

Impressionist and Post-Impressionist artists used "Real Life" motifs (i.e., "what the painting is about"), sharply in contrast to the idealized "not real" subject matter of established academicism,  to see more, go here - "Impressionist - Post Impressionist Motifs"

    I like to think of my artwork motifs quite specifically.  That is, the works here are not "portrait of a woman"; they are Eva and Shannon.
