Art, Construction, Signs & Wonder

Relationship to Approximate Cost

As much as I enjoy creating in the area of abstract and surreal, making art is the furthest from an abstract interaction. Often times some of the greatest artists experience some of the thoughts and visual elements creating a true medium. Arts and education at it’s core a necessary and appropriate stance, a passage, that started with a belief.

“Equally important as an artist’s memory of qualities in the world, then, is his/her capacity to gain access to them and translate them and translate them into symbolic visual form. “

Still looking on

Have you ever stood in the back of a crowd and tried to see what was going on up front? For the socially blundered, we often end up in the back of the class. This painting reminded me of trying to see my daughter, Parker. A genuinely mad crowd turn their backs just so one can’t see. I’m thankful to have a hand to hold me up in case I want to lean in.

So far it’s 700 plus days and hundreds of paintings later and still looking on. The fire behind isn’t very hot anymore.
