Here are two still life paintings by Morandi, I think you can definitely see the influence on Milton’s work.
Two of my favorite works by Picasso – titled Sylvette. Note: the real Sylvette looked quite a bit like Brigette Bardot in my opinion.
Sharing work and protecting your work is a topic on the minds of a lot of young creatives that want to make their presence known, but are afraid of losing their rights to their work. I covered topics like how to copyright your work, fair use, Creative Commons, licensing and more.
Hopefully I was able to convince them that the benefits of sharing your work, by far out weigh the risks. I recently read a book by Austin Kleon, and was able to share some of his insights and advice (which dovetailed paradoxically) with subject of protecting your work.
I finally finished this painting. I usually don’t feel comfortable sharing such personal work. It is a statement about how I know some things are bad (like my fears) but instead of letting them go, I freak out when they are leaving. It’s kind of like a bad relationship that you know is better to let go of but just can’t.
Having worked with clients for years, most of which I adore; and working with employers, my art is not my own when I work for commerce; but here with my little online sketchbook I can do as I please.
I haven’t been working on the Ipad so much, but I have been sketching quite a bit, and painting a little, here is a sketch for a painting I am planning to do when I return from my trip this weekend.
This is the first draft of an admittedly strange image I created while listening to a you tube video about Francis Bacon. Francis seemed a bit dreary about his view of the universe, I hope he has changed his mind since he’s passed over, but he mentioned painting on the reverse side of the canvas and I LOVE the effect, although the color does bleed through and fade. I am planning on sealing it and going back in to make the colors more vibrant- but I love the concept, I call this “FEAR WAIT, Please Don’t Leave Me!”, as Fear merrily ignores me and steps off the canvas.
