My week in art 06-17-12 was, as is not unusual for me , very up and down. The usual artist complaints of nothing f ing works, to masterpiece! to bah what does the public know about art.
As a retired person living in Florida on a tight budget I can’t get away from my artwork space often. I go swimming nearly every day, weather permitting . which this week was not much with all the rain. I try to get to the beach for walks in the evening, and explore this area, as I am new to it, but the call of the muse is compelling . i must give in to it. It sweeps me into another place where the computer screen and the art that must be produced , take control.
So here is most of my work for this week
Spirits Over the Bay
This is one of those abstracts where I saw a image flash if front of me as I was working on this. It was not where I was intending to go, but if you lean your head to the right, and imagine the land colored greens and browns are the shoreline of a bay seen from far above, then the spirits or daemons or angles , what have you appear in the sky and perhaps a battle?
I expected this to garner more attention than it has. maybe it’s not as good as I thought it was. I felt a lot of emotions when I was doing this and was quite pleased with my selrf. The title SDamurai just screamed out of the image to me. I did get a comment on FAA “Stunning. Totally love this!” not sure if they “got” it but at least someone noticed.
In the light
This piece really surprised me. I liked it , but I didn’t think it was all that special. It’s this weeks winner though with or 50 like and 20 + shares on google+. 112 comments like “this is really magical, I love the flow, the softness and the colours”, to cool, wow, deep , awesome. Strange it got no notice from anyone on FAA.
This is the start of a series I am experimenting with. I’m always tiring new things and just playing around having fun. This was fun to watch evolve from something totally different. It got a comment “Wow! this is very nice”
So this is my week in art. Looking back , I’m both pleased and frustrated.. It’s hard to see so little feedback. I cannot grow as an artist if people are to busy to comment on my work . So help me grow tell me what you like and don’t like.
No sales this week sigh, always next week I guess. I will try and do this more often if it gets attention and people want it.
