"Still Life with a Guitar" 24 x 24" acrylic on canvas
Lots of artists find their "thing" and explore it in every way possible. Evidently with me with this "Still Life with a Guitar" series.
I like the flat shapes with the enticing lines that move your eyes around like a road map. Or an Etch-a-Sketch.
It's been a little strange with this corona virus thing, but I've found that for the most part, I've been social-distancing all my life.
Artist's do that. We want to be alone while we're painting, while we're thinking about painting, but when the piece is finished, the artist suddenly needs his work to be seen by the world.
I hear that there are artists who never show their work to anyone. Is that pure creativity?
That zen philosopher ( I'll think of his name the second after I sign off here) says if you're truly creative, you will make your painting, then burn it, without showing it to anyone.
I'm not there yet.
