Step one - Get no life and by doing so, gain crazy amount of free time. Step two - Get bored. Step three - Find what you like your newly found free time to be spent at. Step four - Produce insane amount of stuff xD
It's OK not to react, as long as, in this case, there should be NO negativity read into it! (One possible explanation as to my first sentence is: THAT I pour water color on paper, and let it do it's thing...practically pure chance. You don't do that. I rarely plan. You plan. I'm hoping that much may be understood! Regards: Dick G
I didn't expect any negativity from you, that's why I didn't overreact to begin with.. But things like "my style is light years from this", knowing a bit about you and about your art, I'd say you are more established than me but I don't think it's a style thing... plus calling my art highly crafted, the word craft associated with art is a red flag.. We use similar technique in very different ways, I make backdrops with it, you do what I think is very interesting problem solving type of thing, finding the elements in it that create some image for you... but don't be mistaken, nothing I do is planned... Everything that I do lately is a very intuitive interaction between me, the surface and the paints.
I certainly didn't know that the word 'Craft' carried a red flag connotation. And I'm certainly not relegating your work to the Arts and Craft Category. To me, Craft is very positive word, denoting that the artist takes special care in the rendering and development of his/her style. I would never have guessed your work is UNPLANNED. WOW... Carry on with your unique paradigm. It's quite fabulous work you do. </b> dick g
