Impressionism is art for those who can't actually draw...I love to doodle,but have no drawing talent whatsoever so i do alot of shapes and patterns and colors...I would NEVER consider myself an artist. True art makes you catch your breath at first impression. Like a great writer creates depth and individuality to their characters on paper (Pearl S. Buck comes to mind) a true artist visually stirs you to the core.
Granted I can see a place for the abstract in offices,motels or places where you just want a quiet pleasing non-obtrusive background...but I would term it decoration not art.
