Art Tuesday Is a Doodle Art?

It is Art Tuesday at Elarbee Media and we have been posed the question “Is a doodle Art?”

“A doodle is a drawing made while a person's attention is otherwise occupied. Doodles are simple drawings that can have concrete representational meaning or may just be abstract shapes.” according to Wikipedia.

What differentiates the doodle is the “artist’s” focus of attention, not their execution. Our vote is that doodling is Art of one of the purest forms. The doodle often speaks form the subconscious rather than a conscious effort. It produces something more telling, that is far less controlled in its execution. To anyone who really believes in art, this is true beauty.

This doodle is from a business meeting on a back porch. Two people different styles, but not in conflict.
