Up til 8am doing another drawing........I still have to post "Spiritual Metamorphosis" which is finished, but not sure if there will be a video with it. I may have to alter what I initially wanted to do in a video because of technical difficulties. Now I have two drawings that I will be posting and will be moving back into oil painting after this.
Spirituality comes in many forms. It can take many forms. It seems the longer we live, the more spiritual we can become. The "other side" beckons for our arrival, when the time is right, and yet we can perceive only glimpses of it in this life, perhaps in our dreams, because we are still living on "this" spiritual plane of existence. Each "spiritual plane" of existence has a unique purpose. All of our lives in this "earthly" realm have a purpose. It is the responsibility of each one of us to fulfill this purpose or meaning to our lives...... With the help of God of course! And, of course, the purpose of "my" life is my art.
Working on video to show my latest work "SPIRITUAL METAMORPHOSIS"......and describe it. I hope to post it soon, but there are some complications with it. I consider it an important work enough to go through the trouble of representing it with a video. I will be switching to doing some more oil paintings after this.
Ready to post new art work! But due to technical difficulties, the video of it has been curtailed. Hopefully will post video&picture in next day or so or may have to post artwork without the video. Have canvas ready to start more paintings!
NEW WORK!......"SPIRITUAL METAMORPHOSIS" IS READY TO POST!............BUT.....I want to have a "special" video to go along with it, so I am delaying posting it for a day! Should be able to post by tomorrow!.................Then I will be starting a series of "paintings" a bit smaller than my usual 6ft.x8ft. so that I can accomplish more "quantity" a little quicker! However, the "quality" of my work will never be sacrificed! Should be fun! Will also be completing the very "large" detailed paintings I have been working on.
Will be posting my new drawing "Spiritual Metamorphosis" tomorrow! I hope to have a video along with it to help explain it! Otherwise I may have an accompanying paragraph with it. Will be starting a new series of oil paintings also! I will also be updating and reorganizing my website with new pictures!
Many ideas in my head....Many ideas yet to come.......would like to do more paintings soon after I post my latest drawing. Have to decide which drawing concepts would make suitable paintings and which drawings do I need to elaborate on for my paintings.
"WHY" an artist does a particular work of art is just as important as the work itself. The "RELEVANCE" of a work is also just as important. An artist may be trying to "make a statement" with his art which may or may not be particularly "pleasant" to look at. Not to say that a work of art that is made specifically to be beautiful with no real purpose or meaning is of no value, but "IF" there is "relevance" to a beautiful work, it can perhaps be said to be a "greater" work of art. Take Michealangelo's amazing work in the Sistine Chapel for example. Indeed it is a beautiful work of art, but it also displays a "spiritual divinity", or essence is beyond the ability of most other artists to express through painting. It's "relevance" of religious expression in addition to it's beauty is what has made it so memorable in art history!
Getting ready to post my new work of art which I am calling, "Spiritual Metamorphosis" or perhaps just "Metamorphosis", I have not decided. I may make an accompanying video to go along with it and "explain" the "concept" behind this particular work and what had influenced it........Should make for extremely interesting, unusual viewing.....
My new drawing, "METAMORPHOSIS" will be posted soon! The artwork that I create will probably never be just "representational". I like to have deep meaning behind my work....whether it be spiritual, religeous, or otherwise. Definitely feel "Alaska" brewing in my blood! Hope to go there again soon! I can "FEEL" it!.........I can "TASTE" it!......One of the most beautiful, unusual places I have ever been! Otherwise...........busy today grooming, cleaning, &feeding my pets.
