News and views on art, music, food and life 'Down Under' (or 'On Top' depending on your perspective)
I'm facinated by the way you paint. You seem to know exactly what to do. I nevr know what's going to happen when I start and the damn things continually morph until I give up.
No, lets talk about me. :-)I don't do that kind of art, my art is painting homes, not that you would know it looking at mine. And my inventing when I have time to do it, I consider that an art form also and may one day be more useful to the world than things on canvas.
This one is just the outside of you. Lets talk about the self-portrait part. I think that's the interesting part of you.
LM... isn't your way the truly creative way, perhaps you don't know when to stop! I'm in a mood to just do at the moment with no thoughts of grandeur, or selling, or worth. I like it, no pressure. Billy.... what's useful? If an artist can show a vision of a world beyond politics, profit, war etc. then they can put hope in peoples' hearts which is very useful. I don't pretend to know what art is but I know what it isn't. Shubhajit.... you are absolutely right, but I have to start with a shell likeness and try to add personality as I go.
Well, I've seen all the monkey art I'll ever need to see, all the new stuff is just repeats, there is nothing new about your art, I really don't see anymore point in more of it. My favorite art is out in nature, I just go out and enjoy it.
Why do something static when you can do something useful? Like feed poor people (not bottom feeders) or help build roofs over their heads?
Useful?? just as ideas and words have the power to change the way people think of things;sound and music has the power to change (or influence ) the way people hear and feel about things ;inventions have the power to change the way we use things and live ;painting (the arts ) has the power to change the way we see things ,l think thats VERY useful to me, to you to everyone ..Lets do it well lets do it honestly lets do it with joy .Life without art is not human B
Billy.... don't forget that the viewer has changed over time and now sees things thru new 'eyes'. No I don't think my art is much different but Joe Bloggs can afford mine where he can't afford a Picasso. Billie.... put much more succinctly than I have! Is that a new painting as your profile?
yes its new ,after returning to uk l did nt know quite what to do so l paintied some more dancers to get myself going ,this is one of them Bx
Love it! xx
