The art is me doing it – not what is left when I’m done

We know this idea from Jackson Pollock that the paint splatter canvases were the evidence that his art happened but not the actual art itself, that was (technically)  only happening as the paint was flying!

That is how I feel about my large paintings. The following picture is me air-guitaring in front of my Mother Earth mural that I painted on my living room wall a few years ago.

I was thinking of the synergy of artist, model and then viewer of the art the other day. I was also thinking about how people seem to be so harsh on humanity as a whole. We are divinely created and should appreciate this experience! Be thankful! Live in joy for whatever is there, find that divine creative spark in people!

dazlartist.com inspiration! Be an artist – appreciate humanity! I know that the external physical side of us is just the most basic part of people but it’s a starting point. Find the beauty and work with it for the good of mankind!

Thanks Google for indexing all these pics! It is an amusing meta-game to see where each of my pictures ends up on image searches! Will these little pro-artist pictures end up in searches for Peoria Illinois? Can I add pics to an old blog post and have them indexed – if you see these two artist inspiration pics in an image search then that is what happened!

Artist inspiration - appreciate the human as a divine creation!

Artist inspiration as they used to do it back in the 1950s! We should appreciate the human, each human, as a divine creation! Work with our strengths and cultivate an appreciate for our many facets. The easy place to start is with physical beauty, paint a nude and you join the rich tradition of classical artists!
