Went to San Francisco yesterday to see the Klimt exibit. This Naked Truth painting or its inscription struck a cord in me.
"If thou canst not please all men by thine actions and by thine art, then please the few; it is bad to please the many."
Something to think about.
My husband always says "Just do it". I on the other hand have to think about it, look at other peoples ideas to see how they do it. I plan and think and have "MONKEY MIND" in the middle of the night. . . and then I DO IT!!!...
One of the great things about the internet, is YouTube. All you have to do is type in, lets say, watercolor demo's and you have a plethora of techniques to choose from. New artist, styles or just to give inspiration or remind you of something you already knew about but forgot. I would love to one day figure out how to get a demo for everyone up on YouTube... and I will... its a learning curve! ha. I'll keep at it. enjoy some demo's on YouTube.
Don't forget Pinterest (of which I am addicted to) They have wonderful art pins, and its a good way to keep a list of art and artist you like.
I have a blogspot.com account. This site has lots of art and artist that you can look at and follow also. Check out my site
Ok, my first post on this new blog. Tue. evening Watercolor starts tomorrow! Im excited to be back teaching after selling the house and moving around. We have a little place for now, and I have most of my Art stuff around me, although Im still mucking through some boxes. I am going to try and be more productive (we'll see) as I have 3 or 4 projects and a new grand baby coming soon. So join me and give me some feed back if you would be so kind. And keep art alive.... : )
