She only gave me a B- for it
Don't feel bad.... I ended up with a C in my art appreciation class in college. The instructor wasn't impressed with a stop sign I painted flesh color around the "STOP", then shot holes through it with an M-1 (a 22 just dented the metal) and used red paint to look like blood dripping from the holes. It was during the Vietnam War and I thought it was a brilliant work of anti-war artwork. She didn't (probably a damned hawk)
This instrutor thinks we are master art students or something. It is ceramics 1, introduction to ceramics. What does she want?
Practice, focus, discipline and then mastery.
This piece is from the children's hospice in Tacoma
I was not the lead artist
But I built the boat that was turned into bronze
The kids play in it
Well, that is as neat as you can get! Great piece!
Love the Tom Robbins quote...a favorite author of mine...in that Vonnegut era...a master of prose, vision and humor...
Wonderful concept and execution not to mention it's placement...
I worked as an exhibit designer and builder for about 30 years...so I have designed created installed and seen many installations of art...this one is wonderful!
a small painting of a little creek I have always loved...it's also an old one from 1996
Gene as I have said before it's about "risk"
Remember Gary Larsons "Cow Tools"?...it's one of my faves too...but then I'm a little twisted...
teaching my youngest daughter to flyfish...I gave the painting to her...It is also in the same place as the previous Best Drift post...just about 100' upstream...I hope to go back there to paint next summer
Here are some of my carvings and one of my paintings.
Wow! Beautiful work.
This has an interesting surreal spacial quality!
