So here I am. I’m right back at it again, just like I’ve always said. Oil Pastel (Mixed Media) - 2013
I haven’t drawn for a while. I haven’t completed anything I’ve started drawing in months. Basically my relationship with art for the past period has sucked. There was no drive or passion, just frustration and every project I started crashed and burned as I lost patience with the work and with my incredibly basic technique and skills. I will forever be the first person to say there is nothing special about my art talent. I am not an amazing artist, but my passion and will to just create something has always driven my work and left me with some rather intriguing pieces. Anyways what I think I am getting at is I finally seem to have the passion back. Work in progress but this one will be completed
Thinking back to my end of high school art show, (theses works are from that), I know I could have attempted to be more profound in explaining/naming my work, but I find its easy to over exaggerate the depths of your work, and come off seeming as shallow as a puddle. On the other hand I do know I down played it so far that I came off as a mumbling socially inept lunatic, but hey; there is comfort in insanity.
Honestly though, the work all has personal meanings behind them…. with maybe the exception of the three pure acrylic paintings that were done before the rest although they too have little parts of me in them… and I was so sick of school by the point I had to talk about them with the examiner… I didn’t want to explain any of it. Having little faith in your work doesn’t help when it comes to talking about it either
