If you're an artist, what kind of art do you make?
Drawing, Painting, Photography, Sculpture
an artist who also does a weekly opinion page cartoon for our local newspapers....a mental lifesaver during the years of Bush/Cheney, and beyond. My first cartoon, back in New York City, was 44 years ago in response to the war in Vietnam.
About my artwork
My pencil drawings, hopefully, capture the line and movement and spirit of whatever is happening....a musician playing, a horse and rider jumping, a lemur grooming.
The color work is done from stored images and usually quickly....before the reason for getting out the pastels fades away.
Artists I like
Franz Marc, Kathe Kollwitz, Louise Bourgeois, Vanessa Bell, Gabrielle Munter,
Betty La Duke, Mary Frank, Frida Kahlo
animals and the natural world, politics (reluctantly), books and more books, music of all kinds, badminton
What exhibitions are good at the moment?
Maya Lin's 'Wavefield' at Storm King Art Center in Mountainville , NY ;
Dove/O'Keefe...Circles of Influence at the Clark in Williamstown, MA.
Thank you Dianne for taking the time to look at my art. I have just completed a couple more new oil paintings and hope to have them displayed on the site in the next week or so. Your encouraging comments are most appreciated. I hope you are succeeding in and enjoying your art.
Any time I get stuck on a horse portrait, it is good to have the old fella out in the paddock to go check if the anatomy is correct. That's his retirement job, minding the cows, mowing the paddocks and being my life model. Thank you for the comment.
