9th Annual Art-a-Day Challenge, January 2017!

Sunday, January 27, 2013

I think I have skirted around this idea before but painting is meditative. I did these two to get my mind off of stuff that just isn't going to go away. They are about 5"X7"ish and I spent about 1/2 hr on each and now everything else seems less important. The content doesn't matter except they spoke to me so I replicated them and the process of replication is the thing. The ojects are artifacts which record the process. The pictures simply become the records of events. Also I listened to Puccini's Un bel di vedremo while painting these. If you don't know that, Google it, it is stunning! You do not need to understand the words (I sure don't)to know that this woman is hurting. The context becomes the content in this aria just as it does in visual art. Hey! That sounds like one of my lectures to the inmates. No wonder I am boring. If you read this far thanks. Pat

I read it to the end and you are most welcome. Your pholosophies speak to me, except the education stuff. LOL - Ed
