I’m enjoying Daily Art.
Today they featured George Henrick Breitner. That led me to to an earlier post, from 2020, about this painting:
I found this image in a neglected place on my iPad, in an app I was trying out. I must have made it some years ago. Today it resonated. I’ve been thinking about the value of containment and the value of a clear focus on a point.
I’ve been looking at trees. In life and in art. One influencing the other. The artist on my mind is Ergon Schiele. There is a signature the whole, also present in every stroke, just as a tree carries it’s essence in every branch.
I’ll call this image: I am a tree.
Lee Krasner Made an impact on me when I did the ThousandSketches and visited New York in 2006.
We’re having fun with ink. I am and the boys, 5 & 7 give it a good go. Here are our efforts. The feature image above is mine, the rest mostly kids with my selections of detail.
I’ve mentioned Vincent van Gogh in a few posts in my blog. He is important in my life in that I grew up with him. He was an artist I liked from the start, we had a book at home. Of course, we were from Amsterdam. Also saw a great movie while quite young – well before the Kirk Douglas one. Read Lust for Life.
