Art and Critique Review #3

I enjoyed the final review by Elijah. He chose a sample trio of trees that I did last year. I drew these trees during a difficult time, and I found them to have the stability that I needed.

If you have had trouble linking to this review (I linked the blog title), here is a direct link to each review:

#1 - Landscapes and the Simple Average
#2 - Still Lifes
#3 - The Structure of Trees

Or a link from my personal page:

Thanks for letting me share these with you.

Art and Critique Review #2

Three of my charcoal still lifes were reviewed by Elijah Shifrin. I thoroughly enjoyed reading these reviews as he was very aware, without me telling him, that these are quite symbolic pieces.
Close to my heart you might say.

I love how he compared the work to Jean-Luc Godard's films. I would like to study the director more, because I am contemplating a self portrait, and I have a sense of what I want to do, after a brief visit of some of his images. I created an image in my mind ... time for some thumbnails.

Once again thank you Elijah. Extremely thoughtful and appreciated.

Art and Critique

I have a review of my work by Elijah Shifrin, at Art and Critique blog. He claims not to be a professional critic, however he proves to be quite passionate about art. One that learns more about art by examining different artists, and writing about it on his website.

I am certainly not going to attempt to dissect his review of my work. It is his interpretation of what I do. I am pleased that he has found my work to be worthy of taking the time to look at, more than once. It is a treat, during this time when life has taken the artist tools out of my hands for the moment, to read from someone else's eyes, about that which comes through my soul.

It was interesting to see which pieces were pulled to showcase.

Thank you, Elijah.
