Veron Ennis Art News and Encounters

What does a piece of artwork give to you? What is transferred from a painting to you, the viewer? Is it helping or hurting, exciting or calming, frightening or encouraging?

Here I will share updates and progress in my own work and as founder of the OPT (Open Positive Transeference) art movement, I'll take a look at how art is perceived and share works that I feel convey a positive, uplifting, energetic, or hopeful message.

The art world is in flux as the market turns from a dystopian focus to a rejuvenated movement of, dare-I-say, beauty.
