Something Practical

Every so often I do something practical with my artwork.  A friend of mine, who is an expert in natural health, is creating a line of skin care products, so I did some work on the label.  Remember “Floral Overload”?

Well, I did something along that line for a product which contains marigold (or actually a scientific name for it that I can’t spell).  So, here’s the drawing for that:

Which brings me to a dream I had, that sort of illustrates my feeling towards the artworld, now.

I was in an exhibit of cutting edge modern art, and I was painting pictures of lilacs all over the work.  I was being filmed as I did this, and the footage of me doing this, was a piece of conceptual art.  Go figure.

The Grand Finale

All my bitchin’ and moanin” has come to an end.  I’m finished with “Floral Overload”.  Honestly, I haven’t sweated so much over a drawing in years, but I like the result.  Months from now, it will be the result that means anything to me.

Now that I’ce done something really cheerful and lively, I’m looking back to this one I did.  January 2.  I like the tranquility, and tranquility and soft cool colors is a healing combination.

But I was also intrigued by the idea of a rock concert.  I expected to do something really lively, now I’m not so sure.  Can I pull off a tranquil rock concert?  We shall see.
