Musings of the Artists Mind

I’m tempted to let you define this one for yourselves, because I’ve rewritten my definition too many times. I feel this is one of my most feminine figures. It combines all the aspects strength and softness I use to define femininity. The words I use all have positive feelings and that is where I’ll let you add your own words to my expression of the feminine form. 

The black finish is much more than a skin colour, it’s a need to express my feeling that the feminine spirit is the rock and substance of humanity. The power and strength of beauty comes from her. There is very little extra done to the finish of this piece, as I wanted it to be as raw and pure an expression as possible. Do you think I succeeded?

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.  

Books that Inspired and Influenced my Experimentation:

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.

These are perhaps the most accessible influences, but the truth is that my influences run deep through thousands of books and works I’ve seen & read. 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.
