Well, it’s time to paint again. It’s a very strange thing to be going along and then one day like a bolt of lightning it hits me that I need to create more art.
I’ve decided to do a series of paintings that I’ve had as digital ideas for a few years and stop wondering what I should do next. Just do the art and get back into the “habit” of being a fine artist. That feels like a healthy idea and a very productive thing at this point of my life.
This is the first image I’ll be working on. Let me know what you think. I call it TV-Cows! It’s based on a photo I took in Aruba. This cow sculpture was sitting on top of a restaurant with a antenna sticking out of the top of it. Strangely amusing!
I “stumbled upon” this piece of art on a blog and was blown away by it.
This man’s wife had a sculpture created of herself for her husband’s grave as a symbol of her lasting love. Now, that’s what I call devotion. The sculpture itself is of the finest quality as well.
I’m sure when people come to pay their respects to their loved ones they have to notice this and I’m sure tell friends and family about it.
I wonder what it was like to come to the grave next to it and see it for the first time. It’s truly remarkable.
Looks like the wife had something else in mind when she was considering “until death do us part.”
It seems I’ll finally get around to start painting again this weekend, after about a year off with moving and working day and night as a marketer/designer/art director for an insurance company as well as for some loyal clients who have stuck with me through my own business and personal highs and lows.
I have a few canvases that are prepped and ready for paint and I’m looking forward to doing just that over the next few days. Wish me luck!
I haven’t posted anything here for a few days and I find it interesting how people are finding me and reading my posts from weeks ago. I must be getting the hang of this somehow as I’ve been “tagging” my posts and pinging them as well as tweeting, etc.
I think it’s important as an artist to stay as close to the learning curve of technology as possible because I’m sure that will help me through communicating to my patrons and fellow artists.
Here’s an artist that’s making very cool furniture from airplane parts:
