Creating a Name

with 2 comments

For some reason, I find it difficult to give names to my paintings. Almost always, I immediately regret the name that I’ve chosen. Does the right name help the painting?

In TuneTuesday night stopped by the Scottsdale Center for the Arts to listen to Dan McCaw talk about his work and his creative approach. What he had to say was very much like the conversations a group of us have been having about our work, wanting to loosen up, be liberated etc. What I noticed, one more time, is that I give great advice but pay very little attention to what I am saying. It’s like I hear what I saying but I’m not up to letting it have an impact on me. So I find that funny. Maybe what I should do is get a tape recorder and play back all of my advice while I am sleeping.

Hello world! I am not unhappy.

I will be looking at art work, mine and others and maybe making comments but mostly not. I may even quote somebody every now and then and let you in on a book, poem, movie etc. that I’ve enjoyed. Nothing heavy, cause I am happy. I’m just finding out that we don’t seem to know much, so what ever I learn I will share with you, but you will need to learn on your own. I’m not up for teaching.
