What people see.

People tend to have a notion of what art is. Usually that notion is what they think it should be. Whatever regimentation they have. Some people think every portrait must be photorealistic. Some think art should be pretty for their wall. Some people can't assemble an abstract in their heads. Some are easily offended by words as well as pictures. I am coming from a painters perspective.

"if you work for a living, why do you kill yourself working?"

Not a bad idea?
that's not exactly sympatico.

I mean I am loaded to the brim. If my skull had a rim . the liquidity of imagination would be overflowing it, like too much detergent in a washing machine. I know that there is a great community of artists, and I am sure everyone will make a great member of the fascia and be successful. I don't mean a slight in the slightest, but you may not understand how on fire I am with ideas and with production. I am painting hour on hour day after day, one thing leads to the next. How can I make time to look at other stuff when I am electric with desire to create, like a flea covered dog that loves to scratch. Let me burn out and maybe I'll look, for now i want to make create, produce, execute. stand and deliver.
I undersatnd that you may have looked over my site a bit. I wish I could show you everything. What you have seen is just the tip of the berg, the dot on the letter "i" of the alphabet. A ripple in the sea.Let's get Onwards of 3,000 I say.

Went to the Ransom Gallery last thursday and saw the Ansel Adams exhibit. Really excellent experience. I really did dig the Photos from the Russian Front exhibit as well. A few months back.

I am working with a new model. We will be making some of the best figurative/nudes ever. I recentley discovered a very new approach to painting the human that makes the whole process much faster, much more fun and the results are just absolutely out of this world killer.

As far as I am concerned, a painting speaks for itself. What is the use of giving explanations, when all is said and done? A painter has only one language. ~Pablo Picasso


The world today doesn't make sense, so why should I paint pictures that do? ~Pablo Picasso

God is really only another artist. He invented the giraffe, the elephant and the cat. He has no real style. He just goes on trying other things. ~Pablo Picasso

Never permit a dichotomy to rule your life, a dichotomy in which you hate what you do so you can have pleasure in your spare time. Look for a situation in which your work will give you as much happiness as your spare time.

I who have been involved with all styles of painting can assure you that the only things that fluctuate are the waves of fashion which carry the snobs and speculators; the number of true connoisseurs remains more or less the same.
Pablo Picasso

My definition of a painter is-
someone who paints peop, faces figures, and nudes as well as, landscapes, abstracts.
That what seperates the aspirants.

PainterTownLake said...

Fifty percent commission, with permission to reduce price by 10 percent and the audacity to set the price is complete and utter bullshit. Not to mention complete disregard for the integrity of the artist and total lack of respect for art. If you want to act like you are a beverley hills boutique, or a New york Gallery then you must not be afraid of the Art.

Oh and yeah baby a print is not a one of a kind freaking original. These dogs , these hyenas, these blood sucking leeches, these opportunistic profitiers,carpet baggers, pretentious no talent pseudo cultured artifcial drueling, money changer flesh eating gourged maggots. Draped in synthetic pious robes of spirituality soaked in the lie of self proffessed rightiousness. Do unto others dirt bags, as if they are dead deaf dumb and blind. Long live the artist for no one rembers the salon.

So like Man i was at a library and i happen to be looking at a fine art photo of a nude torso, and like man--- you know whay I mean like the Librarian freaked out. I mean it was a fantastic photo but some people need to be a nun in stead of a librarian. this was a library with only adults. With all the crap going on in the world it's amazing what upsets some people.
