Sometimes, a simple picture is not enough to show what you feel, or to express your deepest emotions of joy, sorrow, or fear. That is when and colors and patterns can be more powerful than a picture of something you know. A red color can express a strong emotion of love or anger, a blue pattern can give you a refreshing feeling, or a pattern of lights can just make you feel joyful. The best part about abstract pictures is that they can make you think of so many things, so you can express a world of creativity with them.
