Sayings of Editor Art

August 12, 2017

You don’t have to approve the message, just allow the discussion.

I wonder how much of NYC art is just hustling rich donors.

Don’t you dare say you support musicians if you allow 1% to make 70% of all the money and you are fine with that!

Everybody writes, nobody reads!

Don’t pave a rut!

Isn’t gravity a perpetual energy machine?

Which is more probable, a one time pop up of 5 or so linked chemical steps that each have to occur in the proper order in a hostile environment that they are not protected in and that would quickly destroy each step, OR a chemical selection over millions of years of UV radiation?

When any media covers the scandal of the few to avoid covering the issues of millions, then it is fake news.

Think people are anal
Fat people are bossy
This little maxim is a major clue to many health discoveries.

House of Thorns: A house where the women don’t get along.

Which better protects our country, health care for all or more military spending for wars over there?

Too much of modern art is just bad surrealism 100 years out of date.

We’re going on a dragon/unicorn hunt. (An outing with no purpose.)

There are about 50 people in the world that can write good music and I’m one of them.

Music MEDIA, what will you do? Report on the cutting edge of the change in music, or ride the coat tails of corporate music with another irrelevant press release.

There is not a lot of think tanks trying to end poverty. That is another problem for think tanks to solve.

Time for a rainbow.

My 10,000th Art Work

June 1, 2017

Not too long after I started painting and drawing, I began to catalogue my works. Over the years the numbers have grown. Tuesday, the 23rd of May, I finished by 10,000th art work. That is a milestone for me.

I work in batches, many works at a sitting, then catalogue them later. I knew I was near that big number, and I was curious which work it would be.

It turned out to be a small copy of an old drawing, that I had found, fixed up with pencil, and trimmed to get a new composition. That work was called “Worried Woman”. Far from being a celebratory piece!

So instead I’m going to go back up a little and talk about the earlier work, #9,998. This is a larger piece and one that I spent some time on. It is called Girl in the Yellow Dress ( or Woman in the Yellow Dress) , and it has quite a pedigree!

The work was first a drawing copy of mine of a painting by a late 19th century American painter. I have forgotten who the artist was, but it is in my notes somewhere.
I loved what he had done, and made a somewhat realistic version of it. Then I made copies of that, and colored them with colored pencils. Then I made copies of the colored version with some in color and some in b/w (black and white). I took one of the b/w copies and added black pencil to bring out the contrast and make the blacks richer.

Finally, it was done. Here it is. Woman in the Yellow Dress. Though not the exact 10,000th work, close enough.
