Answer to Abstract: Emotion or Motion?

Artist: Viola Lee (2) is motion-brushstrokes are loose and carefree; you can see movement with the sky, river, and trees. It does give some kind of emotion in peacefulness because of the use of color. I like how the brushstrokes come off the canvas, this gives a continual perspective that makes the painting move from the canvas itself-movement.
Artist: Fania Simon (3) is emotion-due to faces, or eyes this painting is automatically recognized as an emotion; colors are reds and blues—are also an indicator of emotions: reds-passion, love, hate, confusion; blues-sad, royalty, depression, authority.  Also, the boxed frames with the faces gives an emotion, for instance boxed in feelings, or closed off feelings. Your eyes don’t have an easy flow when viewing this painting, your eyes seem to focus on each  box/square one at a time. The only motion you do see are within the boxed squares with the flow of color. However, this painting does show emotion first.
