#4DaysLeft – #Work on your #ART

“An average person with average talent, ambition and education, can outstrip the most brilliant genius in our society, if that person has clear, focused goals.” – Brian Tracy

”Even talent is rarely indistinguishable, over the long run, from perseverance and lots of hard work.” Ted Orland and David Bayles – Art and Fear

Painting and Advanced Painting:Critique? Paint? Stay Focused.

How’s the CRIT going?


  • 3.1Ac: Engage in constructive critique with peers, then reflect on, re-engage, revise, and refine works of art and design in response to personal artistic vision.
  • You were asked to begin thinking about the work in front of you… What DO YOU SEE IN YOUR PAINTING? That’s it.. WHAT DO YOU SEE? Take your time… look at everything you see in the work and write down all that you see.
  • Folder to upload from is HERE.

Reflection: Time to work today began with DESCRIPTION – was there anything NEW that you saw when you began writing and working today? We do not have a lot of time to work this week but… lots of time use that knowledge in your life.
