July 10th “Being Heard Above The Noise”

“She’s Waiting”

"An interesting technique used by many oil painters is called “Impasto” where paint is overlaid in thick brush strokes or using a palette knife. The technique can serve several expressions of the artist. He or she can use it for emphasis or action, calling attention to a certain area. Second, it can be used to reflect light and show surfaces and thirdly, it can cause more of a three-dimensional affect. You can say its message can be heard above the noise.

Have you ever been in a situation where one person likes to control the conversation and even wants to answer all the questions even if it’s not directed at them? Most of the time it’s pretty rude and self centered, especially when people are interested in having those questions answered by the individuals of whom they were asked.

Impasto can be like that. It can over take and overwhelm a work. It can be the center of attention and the center of a message. It can have the expression be all about them. In the arena of paintings, It takes a lot of skill to integrate this technique either completely into a work or use it for a single purpose.”

“Each day moves forth with its own demands
The cost of our action we often don’t understand
Making judgment is part of living every day
Often those responses cause us to go astray
One thing leads to others giving unwanted fallout
Only “One” to trust to bring you through the doubt!”

“Paintings can feed your life. They make you stop, ponder and see things more clearly, don’t miss the messages because you’re stressed or don’t have time. Have a great week!”

"Find my paintings, or may my paint-tings find you!"
