1-1-11. -Seems like a good day to start something, so I'm starting this blog. I've resisted escalating my internet interaction from the basic, e-mailing, Googling and Amazoning. But it's time I get with the program and perhaps even get a Facebook page -yeah I don't have a Facebook page, what of it?!
Why 'Telling Story'? Because that's what I strive to do in my artwork. Even in a simple portrait; I don't want to just 'show the girl', I want you to wonder: what did she just do? what will happen to her? why is she sad/smiling/winking/whistling? With art, you can convey more than mere accuracy. To show that a person is sad, or triumphant, good or evil, it can be gotten across in color, tone, placement, texture and a thousand other ways. Artists often talk about this aspect of artwork, referring to it as 'telling story'.
Well, I'll share some of what I do here, and try to be insightful from time to time. Thanks for stopping by.
