"..It just comes out"
like a ray of sunshine by lorenza corpullis
Looking at this painting in that room made me imagine that behind the camera the artist and lover actually engaging in a real love scene of their own, in a kind of life reflecting art context (possibly minus the sea and mountains).
Café Improvisation #2 by Herminio R. Giménez
This is kind of interesting to me. From a distance it looks like a sepia wash drawing. As in other works of yours the extra layer of canvas glued to the backing canvas (or board) gives the image that haphazard, lived-in feeling. The thing I don't get is the coffee. Won't the colour of the coffee eventually fade and disappear? Why use coffee instead of paint? Then maybe the title is the key - Café Improvisation. It is, in fact, all about the coffee... [Goto..]
sedia rossa by Nù Metra
Don't know why but the environment of a long corridor lit from one side by a bank of windows giving onto closed rooms on the other, has always attracted me. Is it a cloister, a prison, a psychiatric ward? At any rate, whatever's going on in the rooms in this image seems ok to me. The red chair and warmth of the sun win over any threatening aspect the black ink might possess. Should Nú´s description of a space inside refer to her own internal space within, then there is much to discover here, according to this attractive painting. .. [Goto..]
Patience by Maria Xagorari
Thank you JP. Last time I checked it was hanging in a home in Athens. I hope they still enjoy it. They had also bought a painting I considered rather difficult. "The Furries or The Step". I hope they still enjoy that one too.
Dance for Life by Fadwa O
We need all the more in times like this paintings like this - the colourful exuberant escape of the joy of dancing. What's interesting about this work though is the seeming tint of sadness, loneliness and doubt that makes the title all the more beguiling. The two main figures are not in eye contact, both appear to be vaguely masked, with the face of the apparent male figure on the left deeply shadowed in almost a sinister way. She is green both in dress and skin and appears anything but happy, despite the sumptuous reds of the fan or flowers she cradles. In contrast to the sensuous riot of colour overall, the picture's effect, in my view, is one more of desperation than desire, of the surrender to less benign forces than of the defiance of wild abandon... [Goto..]
The title lesson. One shouldn’t give a title to the painting until it’s finished unless the name can be very long or neverending, like : “do you wanna build a snowman? I’m not really convinced I wanna as it’s turning into a snowman-saurus and more, but do I have to stick with it until the very end? . . . . ” and so on . . . . [GoTo..]
grazie grazie, e' strano mi ricorda qualcosa ma non so' cosa, non so quale artista. il disengo mi fa' pensare ad un clown, forse perche' ascoltavo charles mingus, suo album the Clown. Sara' questo il titolo? The clown "who tried to please people like most jazz musicians do, but whom nobody liked until he was dead"
Time to rotate... haha I know that well. I suppose it's an attempt to find a new way of looking at a piece that's already become too familiar, or a way to a lead that will get you out of that seeming impasse.
I don't think an artists should be removed from the site .I think the artist should have images that they remove from their page as the add more . They should be showing that they have a greater understanding of their own work by removing images. They should demonstrate that they have moved beyond some of their imagers , as they grow in their art process.
Of course my enthusiasm for Anthroposophy is based on practical experience of Steiner's ideas and new impulses.
Haha Flavius... nobody's come to this forum in the last 500 years! You risk awakening some old ghosts, like myself :o)
Has anyone here heard of Rudolf Steiner? He gave many new impulses in many areas. One of these areas is Art. He gave many lectures on art, he was a sculptor and painter too, among million other things. Here is a link where you can find many free books and lectures on art and other subjects: http://wn.rsarchive.org/Lectures/GA276/English/AP1964/ArtMis_index.html

Fotini thanks for not being selfish and joining the conversation, I've been waiting to hear from you. Driven people are selfish, the degree of their drive determining the degree of neglect of other aspects of their lives. It's not just artists but any successful person in any field of endeavor. However there are certainly enough stories of the screwed up children and lovers of eminent artists. Personally I never had that kind of ambition. Sure, my kids had to do without fresh milk, fruits, veget [GoTo]
