I wonder what "real" artist do?
It seems that they make series. That's what I read in my research. That's why I now have this website, an art bio, and lots of series work.
I just wonder a lot. Why do some people have gallery shows, why is some art worthy of museums, others not so. I think its context, history, and public opinion that makes certain art valued. Technique?? I browse the California Arts Council site, Artillery Magazine, Juxtapoz Magazine, and artists' sites, yet I still don't know the magic formula that makes some artists special. I know what I like, such as David Hockney's colorful artwork and his experimentation with different technologies, but why did he get the green light. Everyone wants to write about him, have his artwork, I do. I'm sure other people with equally great art have been overlooked. So maybe it's basically doing the work and luck that is the magic formula for art appreciation.
Initially I was only adding this pic of work I've done. Then somehow I was sidetracked by my mind. This is a pic of my green themed series (back picture). The plan is paint green things that have meaning. Still not sure if this is going anywhere.
Also, I hand-sewed together big balls (front picture) of recycled materials from my clothes and crafting cloth. I ordered a lot of arcade buttons that I soldered to micro controllers pre back surgery 4. Now, ten balls later, I have them cussing when the button is pressed. That's just my recent audio cause cute things doing bad things can be funny. Plus I find cussing oddly cathartic when I'm in pain.
