Lessons from the Inner Self
Lessons from the Inner Self
It’s been a week and I presume we have consumed lesson #1. Only 5 minutes or less, or a quick review, that’s all.

A challenge for myself, as well, as for the next lesson, aha, Eureka!

How do you feel about your painting from week 1 ?
Words beyond, I like it, Why?
Does it talk to you? What does it say? Do you talk to it? Hi what’s going on? What am I thinking?
Did you think this would be a no brainer? for incompetents, sorry.

Now for the intellectuals, those who are here, and remain, contemplate the artist’s mind set at the time of sometime and get to the essence of the completed image.

Art Lessons: #1 Presentations and Considerations

Do your wall presentations have a sound structure?  Examples inspired by algebraic thoughts are: 1+1= 3 or A Man without a Mate is like a Duo without the One.

Paintings on a wall can stand alone but gracefully pair up.  Similarities or discordant views may stimulate gravitation.  Groups then can  change to groupings as well as collections.

Should a common theme introduce the collection or is electic a word you like?

Abstracts representing Objects-? Is that  a guitar I see? A name can change everything.

Life

Is the collection harmonious or randomly schizophrenic?

She spread her arms, “It all Depends on You.”

Do you consider yourself an art lover? Of course, You are here. and I bet you knew that Art is more than a color field to match the couch or fill a wall.

Good Art has vibrations that you can attune to or even raise your awareness. That’s the art that lasts throuh time. Art describes a time and place culturally.  Art history is born from curators and educators studying civilization and the artifacts it left. It describes time periods and artists views of their surrounding worlds.

But where do we draw the line? Representational Abstracts ? Is this drawing musical? I think so. Does that negate it’s abstraction?[ Artists incorporate meaning as illustrated by themes, presentation and points of views. They do not have to entertain you, you do have a TV, yes but artists want to  wake you up. Today there are multitudes of artists, so many that if you dumped a bunch, millions and lost them in the desert they wouldn’t be missed. This is far different than the era of Picasso and his cohorts. A mere handful set the rules and dictated your interpretations of art and style.

Well they died and who came  next?

Million and billions of artists sprung up everywhere and so did art on line. Sites, portfolios, voting by the public, over twelve please, and friend rentals determined content and submissions. These in turn we generated by how fast an artist could produce new bodies of works and what fees they could afford.  Of course you can turn a piece, 90 to 360 degrees. Yes it’s allowed. This is how art will be defined in the upcoming generations. Excuse me, you drew that with a pencil? Is that allowed? Read the rules, only computer gigantic work will be reviewed. Your name must be 6 feet high, at least and fees are determined by pixel count.

Just let me reiterate that there are other considerations besides color, size and furniture choice. Thank you. I’ll be back soon and if you’d like to hear more generous art theory , please  follow me here.

Black and White Drawings Reveal the Truth, National Homeland Security, Chemotherapy and Life

]Airports used to be fun.

Airports used to be fun.

Flying used to be no hassle. Now it’s a 2 hr. ordeal, but a lot more people have jobs, even dogs.

“Bon Voyage, flying is fun. Airports are not.”

You may wonder why I would hang this in my den, my living room,in my home.It’s rather like  the game “I Spy.”   How do you feel about  this. Do you feel safer, annoyed,inconvenienced?What is happening in today’s airport?  Is it happening globally? Art is not always beautiful.Tt’s revolutionary or it can have a revealing nature.
Beauty is good, so is color, but not everything has to be the same, n’est ce pas

Chemo Fans Not

I’m deciding whether or not to have chemo. I think it’s only a 50-50 survival rate.
So I am looking into alternate treatments.
If you have any suggestions feel free to tell me. PLEASE
Pharmacetical companies love chemo. Big money making drugs. Doctors are trained in Chemo therapy.
Do what you Know? Doctors are not trained in natural treatments. How can they suggest what they don’t know?

I read the internet and learn, but I’m an artist. Maybe a Doctor too, soon.

Bad thoughts, was it a good day?  Not for all of us.

Bad thoughts, was it a good day? Not for all of us.
I was mesmerized by two women arguing in the hall,  only a few inches and the spit was flying
The man being fed can’t turn his head, hard to refuse.
Too bad. I think it’s eat up, big boy.

The man in the middle doesn’t seem to mind.
Look how easily the man on the bottom just picks up the dark haired man.
He has his feet behind his head. Easier for carrying and ploop he’s in the cell.

At least he’s not alone.

Abstract petit Paintings from German Exhibition and After, May in Munich 2015

I only mention these pieces were before Germany thats when Christopher Durr told Leni he wanted a piece. What an honor. His gallery is one of he oldest in Munich. He has taken chances on many new upcoming artists who have become successful. He knows art and loves abstract painting. So when he choose this piece and wanted it with such determinism and glee, I knew I had to give it to him and get on with my life as an abstract artist.

Selling small drawings as I have a lot and would like to have others enjoy them. Seeking money for alternative lung cancer treatment So make an offer if you like, none rejected, Be fair and think about what you can. I haven’t found a treatment yet as an alternative to Chemo so any ideas would gladly be taken.

Thanks Barb

The Band Played In My Room

I had a band playing In my room last night.

My brother,the dog  and me in the den.

I like this picture because it’s so funny. I didn’t realize while I was drawing it how little I drew my brother and the dog. That’s the T.V. we had when I was young. I would only eat if Mickey Mouse or Popeye was on. If they weren’t, too bad. I wouldn’t eat. Feed it to the fish,I said, lol.
The tank was nice because the light was always on and you could make sure you made it to the bathroom, which was in the opposite direction by the way.
Not such a good day, eh? Not such a good day .eh?

I like this picture because it’s so funny. Top left, two people fighting, in each others face. Well make up your own stuff or you can email me or comment if you have any questions, such as the price.

 I sat in my room and drew. There were two dogs who love bored games, and two ladies who just happened to be there.
