RAIDER OF THE LOFT ART

IMG_3070

Due to massive support of friends on wordpress, I decided to take a dangerous trip to the loft… Where I had stored my “Art” works.  I have laboured for years under the impression that I am an artist. This is not true. I can make good images, in the opinion of others, but I cannot make good art. Forty years I tried to be an artist, A futile adventure…

Here are some of my misadventures.

MY RAINBOW OBSESSION

I was trying to get to the essence of rainbows… A long hot summer of frustration.

GETTING TO GRIPS WITH JACK VETTRIANO…

Thankfully, only three canvases and only two completed. I wanted to see how easy his technique was… and If i could steal it. It was unsatisfying.

HERE I WAS USING ICONIC IMAGES WITH BANAL FABRICS AND JUXTAPOSING WORDS

I did quite a lot of these, and although I liked them a lot, it was somewhat derivative.

LILITH SERIES

Based on Marie as my muse.

There are more but the point is I was trying hard to be an artist and not a painter. This is the change I’m documenting. Accept what you can do. And don’t worry about what you can’t.
