Thick Paint

May 2, 2015

And sometimes I simply want to throw paint thickly onto a surface and see how it looks. Why not?

And play with the colours.

And with the shadows and the light.

And not to think.

And not to care about the objects of my attention but use them as an excuse to throw paint onto a surface.

Still life "Posy in a Tea Pot" by artist Marina Kim

And not to explain anything to anyone… At all. Like words never even existed.

I can’t see art channel becoming anywhere near as popular as cute kittens and funny accidents, but getting art on Youtube is definitely a must. An article about such plans on New York Times blog.

By RANDY KENNEDY

Joining its hometown industry and betting on the success of YouTube’s new initiative to promote original content, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles announced that it would start an online video channel in July featuring news and talk-show programming, among other art-focused shows.

One thing lead to another, as usual, and I found myself a new beacon, icon, head-figure, an example to learn from – Frank Kern. Beats Will Smith in MiB, Piers Brosnan as James Bond and Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow any day.

“To be a successful leader, you must always be yourself. Be intentional about shaping your life according to your values and priorities. Trust yourself, believe in yourself, and be honest with yourself. Others will then trust, believe, and be honest with you. It is this foundation which enhances personal power. Excellent team leaders establish healthy open relationships with others. They foster mutual commitment in the pursuit of shared goals. Effective leadership is founded on cooperation never coercion…” (Pinched from a dedicated fan (!!!) site)

Through my wandering to” I don’t know where, searching for I don’t know what” I found a great distraction (yet another one!) – GhostWriterDad blog. Actually, I am going through Sean’s free ebook (you can find it on his blog), which is refreshingly different from tons of BS abundant on the Net.

Well, I hope to accumulate enough of the information through all those distraction to kick-start me on some grand path of my own. That’s the idea. Meanwhile, it is such a pleasure to read about the struggles and victories of the others!

Mixed media original print by Margaret van Patten

"Paper Thin"

While looking for artists working in mezzotint, found an amazing art by an artist Margaret van Patten.

Etching with mezzotint

The image is rich in content – messages from conscious and subconscious levels merge in an emotional and elegant manner. The technical diversity the artist applied to creating the plate makes for a complex yet un-crowded image.

Love her work!
