The Untold Story

"But how?" my students ask. "How do you actually do it?"

You sit down, I say. You try to sit down at approximately the same time everyday. This is how you train your unconscious to kick in for you creatively. So you sit down at, say, nine every morning, or ten every night. You put a piece of paper in the typewriter, or you turn on the computer and bring up the right file, and then you stare at it for an hour or so. You begin rocking, just a little at first, then like a huge autistic child. You look at the ceiling, and over at the clock, yawn, and stare at the paper again.  Then, with your fingers poised on the keyboard, you squint at an image that is forming in your mind -- a scene, a locale, a character, whatever -- and you try to quiet your mind so you can hear what that landscape or character has to say above the other voices in your mind."

Golden Tales

'Golden Tales'

If you are a dreamer come in
If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar
A hoper, a pray-er, a magic-bean-buyer
If you're a pretender, come sit by my fire
For we have some flax golden tales to spin
Come in!
Come in!
- Shel Silverstein

The natural state. Our moods change. Our lives changes. Our feelings for each other change. Our bearings change. The song changes. The air changes. The temperature of the shower changes. Accept this. We must accept this. "

You know you are an artist when...

You know you are an artist when....(based solely on personal experience)


  1. Almost all of your furniture has smears of paint on it.
  2. Every wall in your home has one or more of your works and there is still a stack gathering dust.
  3. You love getting your hands dirty with paint - in your eyes it is better than any manicure.
  4. There is always a 'work in progress' on your easel and a few more behind the door.
  5. You've accidentally dipped your brushes in coffee and drank the water you rinsed your brushes in.
  6. You look at blank walls and get excited at the prospect of how you could fill them up
  7. You click pictures of telephone wires and imagine how you would paint the raindrops sliding off them.
  8. You wonder that colors you would use to paint the shadow of the street lamp while you wait for the bus.
  9. You think in blues and oranges with hints of yellow when looking at a stormy sky.
  10. You've spent considerable time thinking about how sunlight changes colors over the course of the day.
  11. You sit in meetings and mentally draw caricatures of people.
  12. You can't help admiring rusted containers and peeling paint and thinking of what great abstract art they would make.
  13. When sitting in a bar, you look at every beer bottle and cocktail in terms of how 'paint-worthy' it is.
  14. You've had disagreements with your spouse if your sketchbook qualifies for the list of 'essentials' when packing light for your holiday.
  15. You have bouts of paint-marathons from time to time - especially the week before you have planned an exhibition.
  16. You look at everything as a subject for painting - the neighbor's dog, clothes on the laundry line, the delivery truck, people at the train station - everything.
  17. All you want in your dream house is a studio.
  18. For you a white plate is never white - its made up of a fifty shades of grey.
  19. You remember the day  you got your first box of paints.
  20. You laugh at the absurdity of all of the above but wouldn't change a thing.

Cyberspace


Cyberspace. A consensual hallucination experienced daily by billions of legitimate operators, in every nation, by children being taught mathematical concepts… A graphic representation of data abstracted from banks of every computer in the human system. Unthinkable complexity. Lines of light ranged in the nonspace of the mind, clusters and constellations of data. Like city lights, receding…
William Gibson, coining the term “cyberspace” in Neuromancer (1984)

Irish Pub






The Irish pub round the corner has a new pool table - loved the green glow this adds to the place. Sketched while lingering on one of the bar stools, but painted later on with better light and a clearer head ;)

Spring is here!


 

Spring is almost here!
I can see the first sprouts on branches, budding flowers, tiny leaves - all quietly filling up the barren trees - until they are ready to announce the arrival of spring.

An abstract depiction of cherry blossoms - in anticipation!
