Musings of the Artists Mind

Here’s a lonely tree, out in the middle of nowhere. It seams to be defiantly staring back at the viewer as they are contemplating the tree. There is also something of memory in this composition; Perhaps my memory, perhaps from yours. 

The colours variations as the sun & light move across this one have made it very difficult to capture correctly in a photo, so I’ve picked a still from a film that showed the transitions of colours, textures, and hues. 

The movement captured in this painting sends shivers down my spine and leaves me with a foreboding that something wicked this way comes. What lies just over the horizon, not so far behind the tree???

What inspires an artist? 

“All they see” is the first and most literal answer. 

For me, that is literally hundreds of gallery & museum exhibits, thousands of books, and tens of thousands of images online.  

When asked where to start a book collections, I almost always recommend these art bibles: Janson’s “History of ArtOR Phaidon’s “The Art BookBoth give a nice overview with good pictures. Once you’ve discovered what you are attracted to there most, you can then dig deeper into that area.   

If you have the time, you are free to visit my GoodReads library to see a fraction of the books I’ve read. These are the ones I remember, that is. Or you can visit the ever growing collection on my Pinterest account.
