seventies decor?

Some of the paintings I am interested in were a lot more fashionable in the seventies than they are now.

but maybe that’s no excuse for this one looking like retro seventies decor’.

I know what’s wrong with the ‘merely decorative’ in art. Yet there is something about decoration that is not merely ‘mere’. For a start, it isn’t easy. Well, I don’t find it easy anyway. I do intend to decorate, but sometimes my question goes “Is it decorative enough?”


“Decorative enough for what?” you might ask.
