Hey Fellow Boggers,
Turns out I will be able to see what you are all up to. Can't keep a good (wo)man down!!Boy there sure is some beautiful work. Elliot, cool aerial. There was no intension on my last post, I saw the picture and loved it, decided to paint it, simple really, didn't mean to start so much controversy. I've thought about doing an aerial, in fact I took some shots from the plane over the Britsh country side, but we'll see if I ever do it. Ralph, nice painting, I feel you are making some good progress...do you? Dave, love the canyon, as Brian mentioned the distance is so intriguing. Brian I thought the farm wasn't dead at all, I really liked it. It reminded me of October with a couple of hit's of unexpected colour. Really liked sour grapes...nothing sour about that, I also really liked yellow apples, I thought the green colours were stunning. I liked the abstract quality in all of them.
I have been checking out Miro, Lichtenstein, Picasso, Munch, Klee, Pollack,Mondrian, the list goes on and on. Funny though so far nothing has really done it for me. It's been great going through with my husband, as he asks really good questions about art, (one's I can't answer) there are so many different approaches. I find so much of the art here is so intellectual. If the artist needs to explain it (rather than the viewer feeling it) I find it very unapproachable and way too heady. The paint, I swear, these days are so much better quality. A lot looked muddy and dull, except Miro. It's funny, in the past the painting I did was always abstract, I do like it. But if I go abstract Brian, would you still let me post on the blog? I have been taking lots of pictures. I found this subject matter which is very abstract in the way I crop the photo, and quite unlikely. Very much about composition, hope to start on a little series, as soon as I get home, I'll keep it to myself until then. I just got to Berlin, London was great, I look forward to all the galleries here, as I have heard they have a world class collection. I'm in good spirits (considering I'm not painting) and view everything I do and see to further my "studies" as a painter. Glad to see all your work. Over and out. Julie
