Not enough words….fixing that.

It has occurred to me, goaded on my a number of external voices, that all the internal dialogues in the world won’t amount to much if I don’t start finding ways to distill the ideas which compel them. So…its time to write. There are a few strands in all of that which will tend to come up, a lot:

  • The role, identity, function, conceit, concept of the illusion of space in art, especially painting since the work of Manet.
  • The role of narrative images and the potential gray area between images which may have external references but still build perceptual experiences which are not dependent on the narrative.
  • Why I hate the use of the term ‘Abstraction’.

This not a manifesto in the making ( there is a point to ponder by typing: why I distrust manifestos) ( ok, another, self-critical, is my vast over use of elipses and my tendency to turn to commas, layers of parentheses, semi colons and colons to distract my self from…)

So, let the fun begin…again.

Last one, I spent a good bit of time on this shot. Looking at it though, I should have spent more, and probs kicked myself in the head harder to find a really different perceptive. But I still like it. Sort of. A bit. #rodeo

Today was my yearly day with the Rawhide Rodeo, I spent the whole day looking back behind the scenes and I finally see what the story could be. One of the interesting side stories this year arrived in two pickup@trucks full of Brazilian cowboys who live south of Boston. #rawhiderodeo #rodeo #maine #maine

Today was my yearly day with the Rawhide Rodeo, I spent the whole day looking back behind the scenes and I finally see what the story could be. My goal for today was to work on seeing the story and the people, and they are some amazing people. #rawhiderodeo #rodeo #maine #maine
