Critiques


What a beautiful set of pieces. Despite the change in time, your color palette complements in both pieces, making it logical and impact...


Great use of line. That's sometimes difficult with acrylics. I also love your composition sensibilities and color palette. Very holisti...

Art, stories, musings, and militant governance over a squadron of tiny granite soldiers.
___________________________________________

I've always thought that stories were important. As tools, as communication, as exploration of ideas, it doesn't really matter, because I can't seem to stop making them.

Like loose change they slip out of my pockets and ring out when they hit the street, and and I'm always shaking them out of bedsheets and cereal boxes and from in between the pages of old books.

I think they are important, so I try to make my art (in whatever media), with a sharp enough edge that it cuts a window into those stories to let in just a little more light. That's what I think art is good at, and it's useful because it let's somebody else take a peek inside if they want.

So anyway, if you want, here is a story.

Wow! Has it been a long time since I made a journal. I'm trying to keep up momentum in 2018, with hopefully a consistent posting schedule, more social media participation, revisiting old stuff, and new formats I'm going to try like this one.
The goal is to feature my own work (And that of others) in sets to kind of draw the lines between works that might not have been uploaded together, inspirational stuff I've found, etc.

The short of it being: here's a piece with focus areas and angle shots. Does this work, and if not how can I do it better?
