Anita, thank you for this art competition!

Art is the expression of one human being to another, "I love you."

Anita, thank you for spreading love.

Art is not an expression of love, but any expression of the artist at any given time when paint hits paper. It also expresses hate, loneliness, fear and etc. to no one or to others. Also an artist throws paint on a canvas starting with nothing in the mind and creates.
