advice [Nov. 14th, 2000|05:57 pm]
The Image Collector
people always tell me i should do this, or ask "why don't you do this". as an artist, i am very resistant to advice. i almost always shrug it off, sometimes with less manners than i would like. i do, however, listen, and good advice percolates around in that farbelized gray matter that passes for my brain. eventually, if the suggestion sticks around long enough, i act on it, usually with surprisingly good results. the broken windows series is a good example of this phenomenon. someone, i don't remember who, was watching me paint and asked why i never left a portion of the painting unpatterned. i remember the phrase, "it would be like a window onto your method". as is my wont, i poo pooed the idea, most likely with some spur of the moment philosophical gobbletygook, and set it to percolating. when i finally got around to the eight painting series, Broken Windows turned out to be some of my best work. belated thanks to whoever suggested it.

I love your current identity picture. The farbels are just swarming!
