Art as healing from a horrible time?
At my day job, a bunch of us did a fundraiser for Hawaii Foodbank on Friday. I brought 14 photos in various sizes (8″x8″, 8″x12″, 9″x25″ and a pair of 57″x10″ panoramas).
A coworker did an awesome job of matting 10 of them. We couldn’t matt the big panos, they were bigger than the matt boards.
We sold 10 of them. Including BOTH of the big panoramas.
Do something for charity this holiday season: you’ll both do good and feel good.
So stoked! 🙂
An excellent haiku picture!
Excellent advice and techniques for getting around creative blocks of many more sorts than only drawing:
In lieu of taking my camera to church this morning, I brought my tablet. After all, I could take pictures with it if I wanted. But (inspired by blackpenart) I had decided to do some sketching instead. This was the only tolerable one that came out. It was sketched quickly between songs (I play keyboards in the band). The top of the music stand looks like it’s toppling over. So when I noticed that the orientation of the shadow was wrong, I decided ex post facto that the top was toppling over into the shadow. Then it would land oriented to match the shadow. As always, done using Artflow: Paint Draw Sketchbook. Anyway, was nice to sketch, I think I’ll be doing more. Hope you like it!
Having seen the Mona Lisa in the Louvre, seeing this now was interesting.
Kind of a compositional, structural study or plan for the painting?
A sketch done using the excellent Artflow Studio for Android. Based on glimpsing Mt. Rainier from our plane flying home from Seattle.
