Color is quite interesting. Mark making is neat to see...
Reflecting back on a few moments from this morning; notice the difference in moods - in color, pressure and movement between the left and the right? Interesting to step back and view, art therapy is real. The way you are able to express yourself with paint, pastels, markers etc. is raw and freeing. I love to encourage you to tap into your inner artist and childlike state and create something today or this weekend. You’ll feel happy and proud, I promise. ☺️ 💆🏼♀️✌🏼✨
You've got a crowd in front of you. It's like a mixture, you don't know what they can offer you. Some may bring sweet, some sour or salty; but as a whole it's a mixture, at the end you'll like that stuff.
This is what life is all about. You're given the centre stage and you're expecting something, but served another. Life won't test you with what you want, it'll always test with what you deserve. That's how you're improved.
Here's a man who was talking some technical topics about his MNC. He was looking for questions from what he said; but a guy from crowd asked him, "Sir! Why there are three triangles on your company logo? Why is it in blue?". Just after this question that guy was stunned because he wasn't expecting this type of response from his audience. He generously replied, "I don't remember that, I'll update myself and will get back to you".
If you don't know about something, accept it. There's nothing wrong about that. Telling the truth after buying sometime is better than spreading a lie.
Remember, life is an adventure, you don't know what's gonna happen next. Enjoy every day and don't expect anything.

In my year-long program, Let's Go Deep, we are already to Month Six!! And this month we are talking about Color Theory! We've got our color wheels at the ready and we are diving into warm vs cool colors, the different color schemes and learning to make neutral colors and varying tints, shades, and tones. Such fun!!!
One of my favorite color schemes to use is an analogous complementary scheme. Here's a hot tip for ya if you like this scheme too: If you notice that your work is primarily one color or one analogous color scheme (two or three colors in a row that are all neighbors on the color wheel), try adding a little “pop” of a complementary color to bring visual energy to the piece. Pictured is a closeup of my new painting "Wild Irises". Here I painted in lots of violet, blue-green, greens, and blues, with just a little “pop” of red-orange, orange, or red to my work. This creates much more excitement in that area of the piece. Cool, right? Ha, see what I did there??!! Color theory is happening folks!
Instructor Karen Offutt’s compelling Painting “Wallflower” for “Human Condition,” curated by Steve DaLuz and produced by PoetsArtists. Show opens Nov 1 @anartegallery_ in San Antonio! Instructor Jennifer Balkan also has work in this
Wallflower "This painting reveals a part of my own personal journey along with countless others. I find that there is often a push and pull between our desire to express ourselves and shed our insecurities while simultaneously craving a safe hideaway for our true selves. There is a beauty in that struggle. This piece stars a woman who, rather than enjoying the spotlight she so deserves, would obviously prefer to blend in to her rich, floral background." Wallflower will be hanging in the “Human Condition” at AnArte Gallery in San Antonio curated by Steve DaLuz and produced by PoetsArtists.

We made a last minute trip to Palm Springs last weekend (yay!) so I got the chance to take a few more pics for #frontdoorfriday I wish I could have spent the entire week because it happens to be the fall preview for Modernism Week (the big one takes place in February). I am hoping to make it back for #modernismweek next year, but this will do for now 💛. Happy Friday!
“ll Deconstructions” Opening tomorrow 4-6PM. DM for details and RSVP.
On view 10.20-02.01 only by appointment.
•Curator comment about the show:
Both artists attach preconceived ideas of female identity and beauty, allowing their subjects to operate on a new level where cliches are banned, and absolute truths of identity and form are reconfigured. Where Navarro's subjects take on a surreal and mysterious quality, Latham's images are abstract and formal.
All is not what it seems. Navarro's use of the color pink, the cliched color of femininity, is in fact derived from the Spanish saying "No todo en la Vida es color de rosa": Not everything in life is rosy. Latham's configurations, always in pairs, look like architectural constructs, but the shapes and colors are directly abstracted from the feminine shapes and exuberant clothes of glamour advertising.
Deconstructing what we have learned and what is imposed on us, both artists take us to another, deeper level: of openness, fluidity, and ambiguity. Their work allows us to leave behind fixed ideas of identity, instead offering a new manifestation of the female form. @sabinecaspariearts
Orange can be described as a color of wellness, health, and balance. This hue is said to increase mental stimulation, boost hunger, and create a feeling of general well-being.
It's cold here in New York and I've read that the color orange can bring about a feeling of warmth. Maybe it's time to get some orange paint and coat my room walls!🤔 Again, colors give off different #wavelengths that can psychologically and physically alter your mood and perception. ELOHIM CREATED Color in nature and in the universe. We were also Given the ability to use color in our everyday lives. Try not to take that for granted!🤓
Jenny Holzer Inflammatory Essays. 1979-82.
Close up, far away you can read the text. The text, the text the text runs and becomes The Gesture. Mark types. Typed up on a computer and printed into colour. The combination of mural, painting and letters express Holzer’s personal/ interpersonal interpretation of language.
The differing light speeds of colour run up and down in the same way we read. We follow the rules for reading. Here.
Writing and the once free press was the first mode of delivering information to the masses. One is reminded of Martin Luther and his strong desire to question the establishment at the time: the church. The printers, the press, the immediate news was radical. No longer did he have to painstakingly write on parchment over and over again.
The immediacy of writing, stamping and printing, typing and sticking up words, upwards on church doors, on governments doors, in public arena for all to see, for those to read, for those who could not read but were able to interpret the motive. Holzer merges these notions.
We are a visual society. Our world is fast as is our information.
Taking a moment, stepping back at the piece and even without reading the words as we "scroll" with our eyes we understand that time is a commodity. Here. Type technology a granted luxury. Then and now. Our eyes used to seeing, see no more.
Currents of green, pink pink pink, pink, yellow, purple, orange dark, turquoise, white, peach pink, yellow lemon, green leaf, pink pink pink, pink, yellow, purple, orange dark, turquoise, white, peach pink, yellow, green run from the top edge of the wall reaching up from ceiling height to feet height. Down. A four pointed shape is created filling the wall's negative space. Expanding before us, above us, below us.
Like a mural painted by a hand it is actively running and dripping down symbols, characters; a language from up to down. The sound of English letters, consonants and vowels play as we scan with our visuals from left to right. From left to write in the West and from right to left in the East. Ideology and its presence are played here.
