24x30 Oil on Board
Another Yonge Street scene. I often comment how other artists bloggers and their opinions can be very helpful in our growth and development as artists. I sometimes worry about being repetitive in my subject matter. I often revisit the same streets and scenes. Marie Theron has a wonderful blog where she paints pictures, tells stories and gives an historical account of the west coast of Africa. She also leaves great comments. This comment she left for me was just what I needed:
"the fact that you study the weather and go back to the same area is an important contribution to art.
I was fortunate to see a Jasper Johns exhibition in the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston. His slogans were also painted on the walls in larger than life fonts: "Take an object, do something to it, do something else to it!" and also: "Every solution is a new beginning"
And that is exactly what you are doing here."
Thanks Marie! Visit her blog and you will be in for a visual and descriptive treat!
