I remember doing this many times before, thinking big toward big ideas and big goals on my horizon. While it was often optimistic and felt nice every time, looking back, things didn’t always pan out the way I wanted them to. Because of this, I’ve been readjusting the way I think of goals.
" No one sees the world exactly like you do. Exploit that. Go big with that. Make art about this every day. Push your concepts and your vision. Work, work, work. If you do this, after a bit of time, you're going to have a solid body of work that is you. Completely you."
"The main idea is that we’re all in this together, every last one of us. We live on this planet, floating through space, circling around a star, flying through a galaxy in an ever expanding universe. This mural speaks to the connection between all living things."
So now I’ve been schooled by a pro. My roommate just happened to have a full professional career as a photographer. He helped me setup the lighting situation and let me use his equipment. Granted, the nice camera and fancy lighting helped. But the overall concept he showed me is really what makes it work.
As I’m writing this I’m sitting in a café in Idyllwild, California with my Sweet Haylee enjoying some much appreciated R & R. We came up for the weekend to camp out under the stars and the 120 foot pine trees, and to enjoy each other’s company. This is the breath of fresh air in between a lot of action in both our worlds...
"The split in realities between the artist and the viewer is huge. The elements of design, progress and development aren’t involved in the finished product. It’s just what you can see in front of you. These videos bridge the gap."
"My grandmother had two paintings from different artists in northern Europe. She and my grandfather acquired both for around the same price some 30 years ago. She had them both appraised recently and one was worth significantly more than the other. The reason was that one artist’s work continued to build in value and the other stayed at the same level."
"I had incredible teachers who taught me how to use the materials, how to put together a portfolio and how to expand my artistic consciousness. But making a living as an artist is difficult, and no one can teach you how to make that work."
