The Waterford 7 back at it

it’s great to be working with the Waterford 7 again as we build our large individual pieces that work into a much larger group project. Looking at the artist David Hockney, we’re doing plant images all from one garden. In the end we’re going to put them all together and create one large painting. Excellent work so far, very focused. They certainly know how to make the color brown.

shoulder surgery and paintings are happening

My shoulder has been operated on and recovery is happening. A big thanks to Julie for helping out and taking care of me. Here’s my first painting and my large canvas waiting in my studio.

#TimeIsRunningOut. You’ve a lot to accomplish – make the best of your time!

“Each generation gets to reinvent art in its own image.” Because art is an act of description, it is inevitable that what it describes will reflect every generation’s bias of the moment. It is not a strict reflection of a time but an interpretation rendered in a language that is always in a state of transformation.

“All art is quite useless.” — Oscar Wilde: Art isn’t utilitarian, and if it is, perhaps it isn’t art. Art serves a non-practical role in our lives, but that does not mean that it is not vital or necessary. One’s individual identity and our collective identity as a culture have no clear serviceability, but they are critical to our ability to function as a society.
