Is the abstract artist communicating emotions that he/she cannot verbalize?

    I believe that's true of all artists not doing commercial work.

    so if your focus is making money, you lose something in your art?

    As an artist I have never really believed that consciously I am communicating my emotions - to me it is making the paint into something that looks nice on the canvas. However, I have had people look at my paintings and analyse my personality from them and they have been spookily correct!

    Yes rainstreet, if your art career  focus is in making money you don't lose something but all things. Your focus in making artwork is to communicate all for the generation unborn if possible.
