Postism – Art that is past the -isms

December 18, 2014

Through the last couple of decades, I’ve worked on some ideas for a new back to basics, more inclusive art. That part of a possible revolution in painting is done. But what should I call it? That is still up in the air … till now.

I had tried calling my new ideas for art post modern art – but that was actually an ism that was in wide acceptance. Then I tried no-isms, suggesting that it’s time for art to go beyond isms to a new broader definition of art.

Then I thought of a mix of the two ideas, and came up with Post-isms, or Postism art.

The history of western art went from realism, to abstraction. OK but that’s not the end of art. That is just a phase. Time to move on to the new art that goes beyond realism versus abstraction.

Here’s more on the Postism art ideas.

More Quatros

December 14, 2014


beyond the bow
nothing but sea

a plinth
in the desert

a caged bird
for the bedridden child

more footprints
than waves

What is a QUATRO. It’s a new type of very very short poetry that usually compares two things, in a haiku – way, packing a lot of meaning in a very small amount of words. There is usually a very real comparison, and behind it a 2nd deeper meaning. Pass your favorites around if you want – Tom Hendricks

Christmas Tree (out of tins)

December 10, 2014

Final 1 of 2


Over the years I’ve collected many tins of all kinds. This year I wanted to use my Christmas tins as decorations. So I thought II’d try to turn them into a Christmas tree. After 2 attempts where walls of tins came tumbling down, with major racket and clanging on my wood floor, I got it. Neighbor Marci took some great photos. This was my favorite. Note there is one New Years tin in the mix, and of course an Angel on the top!
