TILT done

Hurt me, I bleed red. Now it’s done.

Debated about revising my LAST post, but bump that… art evolves, so why delete the contemplation of done just because you hit it with a couple more pencils?

Another quick cell snap, this time at night in a darker room… I just walked in from a night at Open M, as in Open Mind, Open Mic at the M Gallery in downtown Youngstown, Ohio, and knew at first glance that it needed some Pompeian Red tamped down by Rotviolett Purple and a little Delft Blue.

There is an energy shared by creative expression… artists, musicians, singers, poets, whatever feed off each other without consuming anything… all it does is heighten the vibe, expand the energy to spark more creative expressions. Sure, sometimes you need to isolate from the world to zone into what you are doing, but what good is a painting that is never shown or a poem that is never read?

Thanks for reading.

Here is the previous version (unfinished) in case you wish to compare without scrolling back.

TILT art WIP maybe done

20160626_222617-1.jpg

This is the “Tilt” drawing started awhile back… taken to the emotion depths of grief. Faber Castell Polychromos on 140 lb. Canson paper, 9 x 12 inches.

It’s done… maybe… I had to walk away from it before dark pencils blackened the entire sky.

Photo is a quick cell phone snap… if you want to see it in person, odds are that I will take it to the SOAP Gallery’s First Friday Art Walk, 5 to 9 PM on Champion Street in downtown Youngstown on July 1, 2016.

Thanks for looking!
