There is a shift in me, occurring now. I want my art to be seen, and to interact, with more viewers. Yes, I am making substantial art, which is always getting better. In seeking a wider audience I am spending seven weeks in quest of knowledge on how to better use social media skills. I am hoping this will eventually find me more physical, brick and mortar, venues. Why do I tell you this? My art will continue to be made, but for seven weeks much of my time will be used to explore better means to champion my art.
The drawing shown today is from Tuesday, January 16. Yesterday I spent my time preparing for the course I am taking, a course that teaches the best way to utilize current social media. I also attended that course's class, exercised, and shoveled snow. The drawing shown today is an important drawing. It explores my interest in simplicity of form. It explores my passion to increase the feel of light. I believe my art is moving toward light intensity as emotional intensity. My forms normally have dominated my pictures, light being the simple illuminator of form. I now want to see my forms dominated by the light, light as instigator of emotions created through vision. Mark Rothko knew this. Rothko's work became more and more simple, more light-dominated, as he accepted this premise.
