Live: From The Driveway!

That’s right, painting has officially started. While cooler this morning the weather cooperated enough to allow work to start about 90 minutes ago. Just a short post for now and a sample of what this season will bring!

Here’s another piece from a bygone era. It’s occasionally helpful to look back briefly as we prepare for the future. Tuesday is when the warmer weather kicks in for two days and apprehension seems to be the primary force guiding me there. Supplies have to be placed ready for action and the weather forecast will be monitored to see which hours will work best.

Plain Lazy…

While trying to find inspiration for this latest blog post I was stricken with a double dose of both apathy and general lethargy. No word from experts when this dire condition may ease so please accept this humble offering for your review.,,

In a never ending quest to discover new creative directions I’ve been known to depart in any number of ways. May I present a prime example –

The Little Princess

Anyone who has visited Budapest, Hungary or done any research will be very familiar with the city’s fascination with sculpture. You simply cannot travel far without encountering a new piece on public display.

A trip to the shoreline will bring you to several examples enjoyed by a multitude of people every year.

I could get into the entire history of the example provided but a quick Google search will disclose far much more. It’s probably better written as well!

This piece was a creative departure from what I was doing at the time. Occasionally it’s helpful to stretch the muscles of the imagination and take chances. Overall it look like time well spent.

Reviewing archival material when this little gem caught my eye. It was a highly productive year so most recollection of making the piece had vanished but I do like the end result.

An Artist can be occasionally better understood through the trajectory their work has travelled rather than simply viewing current effort.

My own path as been varied and sometimes unusual. The evolution can be traced yearly where differences are easy to distinguish. Provided here is a sample of where my creativity was back in 2018.

Winter Wonderland

Given the snowfall and cold temperatures so many of us have to endure lately perhaps reposting this image may be appropriate. It was originally intended as a background to be developed into a more complex painting later but after looking throughout the drying process the decision was made to leave it as is. I was hoping it would stand out from the countless “pour” or “splatter” paintings flooding the art scene lately but time will tell regarding the success of that aspect.

It was created around mid-summer but held under wraps until close to mid-December to be showcased around the holiday season. Sometime timing is everything in life and certainly art is no exception.

Abstract painting is what I consider my primary calling which consumes much of the time available. Between creating, communication & aggressive marketing it can be an all-consuming effort for much of the year. Like many, I’d prefer to be simply creating works and doing little else but reality comes creeping in and the issue of public exposure and sales demand attention. It would take volumes of blog posts to outline the exhaustive efforts required to gain even the slightest attention in todays’ art world. Rather that bore everyone with that what do you say we get on to the featured work of the hour?
