haha pale - well now I feel slightly weird/pleased that you might have ulterior motives. I guess one goes thru that? He probably doesn't care in the end because there must be a line to cross where one separates from the self. I don't blame him or any other successful artist/person either. I don't know. Maybe someday I will get it. I wonder if that day comes, will I like it? I am counting the t-shirts...
Oh, I like the snowy trees! I may indeed use that for inspiration, thank you - I haven't painted a dead tree in years. It reminds me of one of my favorite A. Aubrey Bodine images
Mistressred I did not mean for the questions to be loaded but I guess they were, kinda.
I agree with much of what you said. Including the modern art of stripes, swirls, drips and such. I mean, I enjoy a great many of them because the color is nice, the lines are nice... but they don't "move me". In my case, it could be very personal - I have dabbled in "modern art" pieces but without a central image I feel... like I didn't finish. A lot of my work leans towards the abstract but I like to describe it as abstract with a point... something more than just a line or a drip. To those who paint such themes, they must enjoy it and/or make money at it so either way, god bless em. I just can't.
No shit. No shit on plates. No.
Ivy_Burrows, your first line gave me a smile. It's true isn't it?
and what I said to Mistressred about modern art. Ditto.
AmanitaVirosa a door or a piece of architecture can inspire. There's a building I can see from work that I became quite fascinated with last spring - it isn't even a very interesting building. But my eye focused on the symmetry that was not symmetrical, the balance created from imbalance. I took a photo and turned it into template where I could explore color and shadings. I took out the door tho'
mamanchat, the figure 8, the number 8... also the symbol of infinity. Which brings us to the mobius strip. I adore the mobius strip...
why do you think he is fascinated with the figure 8?
I miss most of these sorts of things so I have no idea.

This is amusing - we start a thread about Spaghetto`s blog and he stops posting pics. Typical lol
Maybe he took a day off...
thing is, do we really need someone else's pics in order to have a conversation?
seems to me, the jumping off point was just to get the ball rolling
it's rolling... but then again, tisn't my thread. But I have enjoyed it so far.
