a New Shift of Mind, But Wait :

STOP
I hate being an artist.

Please go to new blog which replaced this one but there are posts here that are not there. (good and funny) You may like me and want to read later. But Now this is the NEW , New ART and New writings. Just thought I’d tell you. http://artandelephants.wordpress.com

People always say when I mention I hate being an artist that I chose it. Of course I’d like to have my work remembered but it is a career that simply takes over. OK I let it and for me that was just what happened.  All or nothing.

I feel like I have donated my life, any type of sanitary , surroundings for  a life of artistic poverty. Needless to say this life, the artist’s dream, gave me the luxury of painting whatever I like, whether you like it or not. Too bad I didn’t guess right. Here’s the fun part, whining.
Randow negative thoughts: OO, They hate my work, Mother was right. I’m not good. Hey, it’s a depressing career. Some of us buy into it. Why? Do I like punishment? An excessive amount? Why?

Because I was diagnosed with depression. Pills, no thanks, I’d rather cry and I did.

Another DR. he saw a painting, many years later, changed my diagnosis to dysthymia. That’s where depression = happiness and the rest of your days are in deeper gloom.
So to ease my dreariness I  blog , paint and advocate for animals, draw scathing satirical pictures. Swear, and had my first temper tantrum.  Few see except for 73 fans in the universe. They are my stars

Well when I was in the hospital for pneumonia, I was reassessed by another  shrink. He walked in when I was practicing my one woman play with two characters, wearing a trench coat and bike helmet. He asked if I saw any bugs and I laughed. That did it.  I read my chart, I was now manic depressive. I had joined the ranks of the Greats.

I also like political satire and am good at it.  Almost 70, on my death bed, I can be good at everything.
Sorry ranting a bit.

Art Lesson #3 – The Disintegration of the Art World

A Professor of Fine Arts  wrote me and explained that she incorporates art history into her studio classes availing the students to techniques and thoughts from earlier eras. She will surely agree that hands on is the best way to acquire knowledge. I say ” Beat it into them.” The only thing that they need to do is think, paint, think briefly. Then again paint, paint and go to bed; no TV. This is what separates the men from the boys.

As an Art Professor of Art education it is your duty, conferred upon, leared by the College of Art Menstration, to activate the notion that the study of art history forges sucess. Professors use it unflinchingly, positively to build their student’s vocabulary, the tools of mysterious, non-meaningful  expressions of flotsy, but remember its their insights which separate the men from the boys alright.

Another question. How do you get rid of painting ridges when using acrylics?

What?  You don’t,  do not remove the ridges, either incorporate, by practing your strokes or switch mediums. You do know this is not a studio course so I wouldn’t tell you if I did know.

What do I mean? Use watercolors for example. Oh you students… First year, how nice, yes I do mean watercolors.

Ah, please hold your questions until after class.

What another hand?  No more questions, yes, Christmas break is lovely. Good work, you’re excused until tomorrow.

Does that mean that you can watch TV? Goodness, I’ll repeat myself. Just this once, no more questions. A buzz is activated through the room, Students, shut up. Leave.Yes you may. Good by.

Educators,as seen by the student’s behavior it is up to you to straight jacket their minds to focus, to cuss, etiquette is so important. They must be able to enter Soethby’s, the Louvre, Workman Arts. Pound it ino their mallable brains, no not figurativly but manually. These are valuable insights which shape boys into men.

Furthermore go ahead and drop all women from your student lists. Art historians note there are less woman painters than men. Why? They are not as good. This separates the girls from the men.

Are there any questions before I dismiss class?

 What? No, in the art world.   Yes, you may watch TV.  What about? Art.  Leave , leave.  

Oh I heard that you think that I’m overzealous, I think not.

Let’s end now, on this note . Wait, please, do prepare for a short quizz on Monday. You are the  forgers of these shallow …Are there any Meaningful Thoughts or Concepts Left ?

Leave, Leave

Good by
