Be A Part

     Write your own Blog.  It is a good way to start a discussion.  Topics are as vast as there are color combinations.  One can see discussions in the past have been on several subjects.  Write on any topic related to art, maybe something you're addressing in your studio today, a question about a technique,  a museum or art show you found to be interesting, from the academic to the abstract.

Justice In Art

   From  Francisco Goya to Pablo Picasso,  art has been used as a vehicle for bringing social awareness, change and Justice.  Goya saw the French massacre of his people and made several prints of those atrocities.  The prints he made depict the senseless brutality of  soldiers attacking ordinary people in horrific ways. Goya's painting, "Third of May 1808," is a prime example of how an artist uses there talent to record a horrible action.  In doing so Goya communicated to the world the…

Artist Vampires

  As Artists we are receptive to our surroundings and the relationships we keep.  They influence our decisions consciously or unconsciously.  Some of our relationships are nurturing and inspiring, while others not so much.  These latter individuals can keep us physically, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually from our art.  Artist Vampires. It can be a settle act of approaching an artist at the wrong time, such as when they are in front of their easel working, interrupting their flow. …

Tribute To Fred Farmer

Sad to say this last weekend one of my good buddies and member of the World Artist Exchange past on, after battling cancer.  He was one of a kind artist and friend.  His ceramics were primal, soothing and natural.  His painting assemblages were fearless and broke convention.   A picture of Freddy and images of his ceramics can be found on his W.A.E. page and if you go to "photos"  on this site and  then search for  "The Art Cathedral" you will see Freddy's…

Giclee or not to Giclee, that is the question

I don't know how many people know about this process.  It's called "Giclee" - It's a process  where an original piece of 2-D art is reproduced digitally, using an ink jet printer on a piece of paper, even canvas.  For example you make a painting, lets say its a big one.  20ft. X 30ft.  Now, you can take an image of that painting and get it printed on a canvas, 20" x 30", say 30 times. So you have 30 prints of the big one.  Some people take each one of these "prints" and hand sign them or…

overcome fear

We are living in a fear based reality.  We can take the hook and dwell in that or we can refuse  to cooperate with this state of being and spend money on art ourselves.  We are all scrambling for a dollar, trying to sell our art.  How much art are we ourselves buying???  As artists I think we can support each other quite a lot.  I try to buy from local artists when ever I can, even if it is just a card.  We as artists know the value of surrounding ourselves with beauty and light.  Namaste…

Constitution

It seems more and more, I've been talking to my artist friends about the trials of being an artist.  I maintain that artists have more fun and have the gift of making things and looking at life in a very unique way.  However, constantly re-evaluating and redefining your approach, obsessively and unconditionally focusing, finding the means to support your appetite for art matterials (not to say also the essentials like food and rent), and creating show opportunities can be daunting to say the…

International Internet Global Warming focused art show

International Internet Global Warming focused art show

 

Many artists are also environmentalists, concerned about the well being and beauty of our shared earth.  We are putting together an art show, not related to any specific politics or religious view (although your personal artistic interpretation can express any view you choose), to raise interest and consciousness about our deep concerns that we preserve the best of this world.  I will have professional help in getting this…

Art Virgin

Thanks to Daithi and Leif Larson, I am about to lose my Art Virginty. That's right- in front of hundreds of people I will  show my first paintings during the The Oshkosh Gallery Walk April 2, 2011. I'll have five pieces as part of the "Public Employees Art Show" at 480 N. Main St. One year ago, I was contemplating doing something like this and now I am going to do it. Talk about ripping your close off in front of a bunch of people you don't know- what a dream!

 

Thanks Dave and…

Inspiration

Picasso once said something to the effect, there's painting and then there's everything else.  Sometimes I sit and stare at a painting for days, but as soon as I touch the canvas with my brush a different world opens up.   Inspiration comes in many forms: travel, a book, meditation, sleep or food depriation, a good conversation with a friend, going to a museum, making love, walking in nature, a dream.  The process however and being in the sudio is what gives me the most ethusiasism, or in latin… Continue

World Artist Exchange to Nepal

I have just returned from traveling to Nepal. It was amazing. The people who live there are so kind and gracious. It was my privelage to live with a host family for a week and get a feeling of Kathmandu, it's culture, and it's people. I also ventured through the mountains and the jungle.

The World Artist Exchange in conjunction with the Friendship Force, I was able to teach painting to some children in a primary school set up by the Save the World Program. The experience was…
