The problem with art today: the artist believes he must find a style (or a schtick really) and defend it with his life. And if all the schticks are already taken, he must pull one out of his ass. He must find one, invent one, fabricate one, for he can be nothing if he cannot be original.
I’m Still Here!
I have been working on some small oil paintings that are in various states of not-quite-doneness, and one 24″ x 24″ oil painting that is coming along quite nicely, but surprisingly, and I have 3 sketches ready to paint as watercolors.
For now, I thought I’d go ahead and finally share my 3rd painting from this year, which I haven’t shown before. It’s a bit busy, a combo of 2 things I’ve been exploring recently. I finally decided I like it after all. 🙂
