And I was thinking, it's been well over a year now that I've been trying to be witty or whatever you'd call it and I've gotten 3 comments total. And, admittedly I haven't posted lately because it's actually hard to think of thing....oddly enough. Even the unconventual lifestyle I have.
Oh, and the cat.
Sound evidence that I'm not the myth I think I am.....so I was just going to quit.
Well, just like Life likes to do when you think you've got it all sussed.....there was 'K's' little comment on my last post. And somehow, I was renewed.
And all of the proceeding has me thinking about 'feedback' or acknowledgement. An Artist's life is pretty much in the solitary envelope of a studio. Even when you have your paintings on display, it can be in a gallery or Show that you are not around all the times and consequently can miss dialogue about your painting (or you yourself....depending!)
We ALL need to have interaction in our lives. If you constantly put out your 'work' and no one responds, it leaves you feeling, well, alone. And it doesn't have to be even Art, per say. We need that word or that touch to let us carry on no matter what we do. It's a recognition that tells us we have worth in this very aberrated world.
So, THANK YOU 'K' and if i may be so bold....let me know, every once in a while, please, that you are out there. And if I AM worse than watching paint dry (which I am fascinated by because it changes color as it dries and the painting morphs...but I digress...yet again) well, let me know that too. What would you be interested in?
Willing to please.
Painting by Edward Hopper and I forgot to get the title so I will correct that as well...sigh. I love the atmosphere he portraits. THAT is some amazing when you think it's paint and shapes on flat canvas. In the presence of a master, my friends.....
