No problem. I looked up Naive Art after it was brought up I this thread and I would definitively say it belongs there. I however hate the name. "Naive" has always had a negative stigma I would prefer Whimsical Portraiture lol. Or Whimsical Art.
perilousrealms is absolutely correct. Art doesnt fit in a box. Can't, won't, and shouldn't. By encouraging people to be different, qwirky, unique, that brings out true geniousness. Not copying what so-and-so is doing. freedom of religion is the same as freedom of art. My art IS my religion, and thats how I choose to express it. I think Seraphine only wanted an indication if her work was more abstract or impressionist, or even expressionist. I think, myself, I see Seraphine's art as expressionist.
Sorry i'll try to explain better, everyone has their own style but except for the artists who created that category it's rare to trully fit into a category, even if you limit yourself and put a lot of effort into one unique style also everyone will look in a different way to your style.
(For example, one teacher of mine categorise some of my works as "influenced by impressionism" another "with surrealist inspiration" some friends see other drawings with my style as "cartoony" others as "like anime" any classification is imprecise because it changes from person to person.)
Peaple usually see art as fitting into adjectives/caracteristics not categories, for example i see this one from your gallery as: [link] "fluid, relaxing, watercolor, confortable colors"
