Number one in blog postings. Some of the information that I share will be contents of my head and some will be interesting stuff from others that I feel is worth passing along. Mostly I hope YOU will find it interesting and keep coming back.
I will try to cut a wide swath of interests to share. Some of this will be for fellow artists and some for the art collector and enthusiast. Hopefully a broad range of folks will find some interest in a good share of it. I won't promise to post on any given schedule, but will make a well intentioned effort to post weekly.
One of the first shares for you is a column that I have enjoyed for some time now, from Robert Genn. You can access it at http://www.painterskeys.com and subscribe if it so moves you. Robert's columns seem to have a much broader thrust than just art. But then isn't art the thrust of life? Robert is currently in the sunset of his life as he is succumbing to pancreatic cancer. But his column and legacy continues on through his children. And what a rich legacy he leaves. A little something for all of us.
As artists, we all hope to leave a legacy in the work that we produce. But, I think that the stronger impetus for the creative individual, at least speaking personally, is the drive (need) to create. The stimulation of the brain while creating is a euphoria for problem solving, perhaps akin to Dr. Frankenstien in the creation of the monster. Of course not everything that an artist turns out is a fully functioning breathing monster, but the process is so satisfying. We are always anticipating the next creation.
Go ahead and share your thoughts, questions, or possible blog topics. Thanks for stopping by.
Creativity has been my life and I would like to share some of my thoughts, learning and fun facts with you.
