A reader saw this post and fell in love with the Blue Bird. She wrote and asked me to make one for her. I did and this is my result.
This is the second time in a month that I have recreated a piece of artwork.
I have a invitation.
Does anyone want to join me in a blog/book reading of The View From the Studio Door, by Ted Orland? Ted Orland coauthored Art and Fear which if you haven't already read it is a fantastic commentary on what "an artist encounters each time they enter thier studio and stand before a blank canvas". In this book Ted Orland explores the "broader issues of what stands on either side of that artistic moment of truth: What are we really doing when we make art?, For that matter, what is art anyway?... and how do we place our art in the artistic community?"
These are excerpt from the back of the book.
This is my idea:
We will each read the book.
We will post about what we have read on Tuesdays, so that it will be easy to surf around and read each others thoughts.
If you do not have a blog, you may read the book on your own and post comments to my blog.
The official start date is June 1
Send me a link to your blog and I will create a participatory list of readers.
This is the button I have made for this group. Please use your own server to post it on your blog. Bandwidth theft is an issue we all need to be aware of.
