ART POEMS AND SAYINGS

MODERN ART

Modern art
you’ve lost your way.
I’d rather see
a comic book,
fashion drawings,
or children’s art,
an illustration,
or anything but
Modern art
you’ve lost your way!

Weird art is easy. You put a strip of raw bacon across an expensive violin – but it’s not great art!

Modern art is the salon art of our day.

Look at that
pencil and pen.
How many drawings
are left in them?

Sometimes painting needs bigger themes then ‘look I’m weird and have problems’.

There is a difference between a sketch and a sloppy painting. The first is fresh and lively. The second is unfinished and needs work

too little detail
and it looks sketchy
too much and it
looks overworked
just right, viola
it looks complete

painting skill – drawing skill
romantic – classical

A good artist can paint abstraction

Right for all – Internet Access

April 25, 2014

The mail delivery is free to all. The internet should be like the mail – access to it should be guaranteed to all, free, from the government. It should be like a main road. Everyone should be able to travel on it. It should be a basic right, not a corporate product.

When you look at a painting with a person in it, you look at the face. When faces are blank, you look for meaning in the body language or the environment around them. Here is a set of blank faces but not blank meaning.

Got Low Wages? Just get a better job…

April 23, 2014

Being a theater worker for decades, I support fair wages for what we do.  But when I suggest Hollywood multi millionaires should brag less about how many millions they made over the weekend, and do more for theater workers, I get this response:

Don’t like unfair wages? WHY NOT GET SOME TRAINING FOR A BETTER JOB?

Now you are talking: Let’s say every minimum wage worker went back to school – how does that sound?

1. Many have to work, and can’t take time out for training
2. Even if they could, there are few jobs for people already trained..
3. Many factory jobs were sent overseas.
4. Customers like you, and companies like theaters, need the low wage jobs filled now.
5. Many corporations are making all time high profits.
Minimum wage should be a fair wage.

*These are the 8 lowest paying jobs: Fast food, dishwashers, cashiers, hosts, amusement part workers, movie theater workers, farm workers, personal health care aides.
