Good day everyone….
No two artists when looking at a blank canvas see the same thing. Two photographers looking in the same area, along the same street, will each have a different “capture” in their lens. Ever heard these words.. ” you were there, didn’t you see bla bla bla” Well, you both might have been there at the same time, but you both very likely didn’t see the same things. Each would have viewed the scene or circumstances from his/her own perspective.
Now the word “artist” what does it imply? Or the word “crafter” are they one and the same… hmmmm. you thinking about it?
Does it come down to how quickly you want your pant to dry? No two mediums dry the same way ,even when choosing an ink pad, you have to know what you want to do with the ink you are using.. if you use the wrong kind, your inks can bleed or run… even when you thought it was dry… kinky right..
That is why I love life and all the artist challenges it provides. When I make the wrong choice, .. I get to start over or try to work with the results of my 1st choice. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it just doesn’t. A friend draws in chalk, she lives the moment, when it is gone, she has lived the experience, and moves on.. that is a beautiful way to let go.
I loved the play of shadows and light on the bramble above. It struck me at that moment that it was full of intrigue. Today should I see it again, I might not give it a second glance. It would simply be a mass of twigs and branches waiting for spring and rejuvenation.
La vie est belle, it is our perception that can cloud or colour our view.
I prefer arylic and water colours to oil… why…. paint time… =^_^=
