Thank you for all these, piff.

I don't agree with the picture about the vacation one - but like the rest. I have not had that many vacations in my life and treasure the memories of most of them. The scenes I have from them, in photo and sometimes in my own paintings, are important to me beyond description here. Well, now. Maybe tomorrow I can up with a description of how important. My vacation memories are quotidianal and iconic at the same time. If others feel that way, maybe a painting by someone else that referenced the place would be a good thing.

I know local stuff is often hackneyed. But not always.

On the quotes, I hope over the weekend to add some from a book I am reading.

Abstract literally means to draw from or separate. In this sense every artist is abstractÂ… a realistic or non-objective approach makes no difference. The result is what counts. (Richard Diebenkorn)

"I don't believe in art, I believe in artists."
- Marcel Duchamp


(I do not know this is a good quote or not, but think it depicts his attitude well.)

Until I am armored to the hilt with a sympathetic art lawyer, i suspect that shall be the case, But I learn from experience anyway.
A quote from Corot (1850;pre-impressionist times):
" The first two things to study are form and values. For me, these are the bases of what is serious in art. Color and finish put charm into one's work.
...Beauty in art is truth bathed in in an impression recieved from nature.
...Reality is one part of art; feeling completes it.."

To paraphrase Delacroix, the ESSENTIAL virtue of a painting is to be a feast for the eyes.

You can quote me on this Cool : Do not reject a painting for its defects; do so for its lack of virtues.

Are you quoting yourself? Wonderful!

It also reminds me of something I can quite think of, back later.

Yeah, Osso. It's mine. And I must admit it's cleverness is above my personal norm.
If I were referring to MUSICAL mininalists I would have said, of course, "too many sounds."

Your quote is reminding me of something I read in a New Yorker article about the new DIA museum....which I haven't looked up yet to find the quote.

In art, the blank space is supposed to be as good as what's filled in. c.i.

I failed to grasp your point, C.I., but I agree that "negative spaces" are as important--aesthetically--as the positive ones. In abstract art, the distinction between postive and negative shapes virtually disappears. Everything is positive (or negative, perhaps, if you're a buddhist Very Happy ).

Sounds like a challenge. Wink c.i.
When I say "blank space," I'm talking about all forms of art including music. c.i.
