Like A Rabid Dog Waiting For You Outside Your Front Door

Shock Art!! The World Of Tracy Emin

Shock art. Shocking. Absurd. Perverse. Yet it exists and it is a reflection of all of our internal turmoil—the internal world, the subconscious dream world, the very real world of war, plagues, crime. What is art but life replicated or…

I've not been too active on this site (sad to say). However, I'm making it a point to do so now. I have lots going on. At the same time, I always enjoy learning what everyone else is doing. Also, I love to support the Fresno art movement.

I'll start by saying that next week I leave back to New York City. I'm continuing my education in drawing at the Art Students League. I'll have two 4-hour classes, Mon-Fri, during the month of October. In both classes I'll work with nude…

Michael Borremans (amazing painter)

The visual imagery of my work Self Portrait as Mamita Carmen was inspired by this amazing artist. He is a painter from Belgium and his works are mostly figurative but have a bit of a surrealist quality about them. I wish I could explain it through words, but it's kinda hard to describe his style. His subjects in his works almost defy gravity. He kinda makes his own reality and shows his perceptions and imaginations through his paintings. Here's a link to a website that features his…

Rent Art?

Art Consignment. Or Art "Rentals"? Same thing? Different? Anyone know how that works, what the general agreements are, how one charges for that, how it works, yada yada? I would appreciate any info or tips. You can reply here, or send me a message.

I need to get many of my larger reverse glass pieces hung in a longer term home for a couple months and was hoping something like that would work out.

Appreciate picking your brains! Thank you!

An Outsider's Look At Jean-Michel Basquiat

To many, Jean Michel Basquiat is a mystery; his art, his persona, his cryptic messages he tagged all over NYC. To anyone unversed in art

history, his paintings come across as either child-like or genius. As one

artist put it in the movie, “Modern Art A Complete History”, to be a genius is

to be a child all over again, whenever you need to be one. Jean Michel was

certainly a prodigy, by the age of twenty-seven, upon his death, he had left

the world…

Poster Painting My Life Away

To the serious artist I am a joke. No serious artist works with poster paint, what am I, five years old?

But before I justify working with this medium, a little history.

I started drawing in college, at Fresno City College. I loved the sensation of charcoal and nupastel under my thumb. I got accustomed to the way gliding my finger across the page created a softening in tone. It was almost watery at the edges yet the charcoal could be laid on heavily to create a uniform and dark…

A time to see art...a time to buy art...Art Hop!

Art Hop is a great evening to get around to see and buy art. It is too bad that many do not take advantage of the opportunity to purchase the art. Not just because I operate a local gallery, but in support of the artists we all enjoy seeing, we need to promote the purchase of art.

I enjoy a fun free evening...and I have often commented to people being "free" is a good reason to art hop, but let's face it,… Continue
