Okay - as I have confidently stated that I am an artist... that didn't last long! Attended the guild meeting with an internationally accomplished artist as speaker. Mark Mehaffey, water media artist! WOW, incredible work and insight he gave into it. Way beyond what I think and do - starts the head spinning.
Here is the thank you I sent to my photographic artist friend Deb for inviting me:
I want to thank you for inviting me to attend your meeting last night. I hate being late so it was a real mental game for me to show up. My brain was saying - you are going to be obviously late and you aren't really qualified to hang out with artisits'. I am sure you understand where I was coming from. Soooooooooooo, I feel like I made a huge leap showing up! As I sat, listened and observed his incredible art - wow - again, what am "I" doing here... I have decided... lots! Yep, I'm just a Sunday artists as one of my art friends says - but hey - you've got to start somewhere and how else can I improve if I don't expose myself to others of huge talent.
So blogland friends, yes, back to the drawing board on my painting of Cloee - no I won't take you through the whole process again BUT do hope to show you a more emotionally impacted rendition in the future.
I had planned a path for today's post that is totally changed direction but two challenges or just things to ponder...
What color are you? Are you inside or outside the lines????
I shall give you my answer with a sketch next week. If you would like to share your answer - please post a comment and your blog address - I don't know how to do the winky linky things!!!
AND THIS IS REALLY BIG...does anyone remember a Paul Newman movie where he played an artist in Paris??? I remember him in a studio with music blasting and a huge machine with crazily swinging robotic arms with paint brushes going everywhere... AM I Nuts or was this a real movie... maybe it wasn't Newman... help????
