Abstract art

I have always been fascinated by abstract art - not all of it; just the ones that I can feel are saying something to me. I have always found Picasso's work amazing, and even while others said he must have been drunk or cross-eyed when he was painting, I have remained convinced that he saw something there that others couldn't see. Or wouldn't see. His wasn't just splashed colour on canvass. He used his paint as I do my words: to say something, to comment about his world.

Yennyways, back to why I'm here: Today I found something online that I thought was simply brilliant.

I have his site on my sidebar, but I'll put it here as well:
