Some people go a lifetime never finding the love you found with your Tim. I am one such person. I am so happy for your time together and so glad that it continues even now. The apples are beautiful, as is Moe. Lucky giftee indeed! And Suz, I think you are in your head as much as I am in mine! LoL
I love to read you are excited about what's next! It's all just a journey, isn't it?
You know... not only does your artistic license not expire... you can UPGRADE it to a more powerful one when you need it!
Thanks for these good thoughts, dear Suzanne. Your honesty with yourself and your audience is truly inspiring. As is your work, which continues to be beautiful, and growing.And yes, that lack of motivation and feeling for painting is sometimes a problem for me. Just working through the "what's the point" downs and lows usually gets me to the other side where there is some interest and joy in the work. Except for some pieces (a few commissions come to mind) with bad references or other problems. Those feel like trying to walk waist deep in mud.
Wonderful painting. Beautifully painted cast shadows to drool over. I enjoy seeing an artist successfully breaking the so called "rules" - in this case having odd numbers only. Where these rules come from I have no idea, but another one is not to put it in the middle. Art is full of "in the middle" beauties. Love your design. Close up but with that feeling of distance by the clever placement of the back one. Regarding creativity. Personally, I can't force it. Wish I could. I am just emerging from a hard emotionl year of where my focus was on making myself keep up with the discipline of painting, but when I look back I see creativity was on vacation. I am beginning to feel the stirrings of it again. "Nature does not know extinction... All it knows is transformation. " Warner von Braun. Tim has definitely not gone. Just transformed.
Your apples are divine - they just GLOW!! Your words about ignoring the ego, and just focusing on the joy of creating struck home. Thank you for that, Suz. I am going to head off and paint, and simply enjoy each stroke :)The Gunk
