WELCOME

This will be about my views on what it takes to put a three dimensional world onto a two dimensional surface. With a lot of digressing.
Don't forget to leave a comment, or a question if you have one, below the post. Thanks.

ISOLATION

Gauguins painting of Van Gogh painting sunflowers


The act of painting is usually a solo act. A one man show. Pardon. A solo show.
To be alone is desirable, except when it's not. Most artists work intensely in solitude. When they come up for air they wonder where everyone went.
Lets party!
This is the nature of the beast.
There are some who work best in a group, but I wonder if it's their best work?
Poor Vincent desperately wanted Gauguin to stay with him. For awhile they both painted sunflowers, they both painted A Chair, but ultimately I like to think that as good as Gauguin was, he knew in his heart that Van Gogh was better. And so it goes.
Lend me your ear.
More on that fiasco later.
