Saturday, I love Saturday...

Hello faithful few, how does this weekend find you? My week was pretty uneventful as far as art goes. I have been contemplating this piece that I am work on right now for too long. I don't want to get hung up on just one piece you know what I mean. I need to have a couple of other things going at once. I need to keep my creative juices flowing.

I think tomorrow will be a good time to revamp my artists' statement. Its been awhile since I have worked on it, so it is quite dated. I think next week I will show you guys some sketches and maybe let you guys read a rough draft of my statement. In the coming weeks I want to post more sketches to show you guys how I am progressing week to week. Just to keep you, the faithful few abreast of what I am doing.

That's all I have for you guys this week.

Until sometime next week, namaste and stay strong...

So it begins....

Well, well, well, what do we have here? Why its a post from yours truly...I just know you guys were waiting for you weekly blog. Your eyes were burning from the anticipation! Lol. Well faithful few fret not, for I have come bearing gifts of literary goodness.

I started my next piece when I got home today. I kind of sketched out the composition of the piece and i know where I want to go with it, now its all about the execution. I also need to figure out how I want to express my subject matter. It will be figurative but at this moment I don't know just how figurative it will be. Do I want to go for realism or expressionism? Do I want to capture the subjects essence or their emotion? I figure that if I sleep on it I can really put my best effort into it. I am not looking for anything perfect, just something that is really focus driven. In an event you guys will be the first to know what I decide, when I decide it. That's all I have for you guys this week.

Until next week, namaste and stay strong...

New Work

Hello faithful few, its that time again. This week I am going to show you my latest creation. This is the piece that I had in Maryland Art Places' Out of Order show.

The title of this piece is, It all falls down. This is one of the last abstract pieces that i am going to do for a minute. I want to get back to doing more figurative work. I have been saying that for awhile but this time I really need to focus on doing this. Don't want my body of work for the 2 years or so when I start applying for Grad schools to be completely dominated by abstractions. So for now I am going to change it up. I need to step my game up people. I will keep you guys posted on my progress. That's all I have for you guys today.

Until next week, namaste and stay strong...

Dumela everyone, its that time again. I know I told you guys that this week I was going to post a pic of my lastest creation that I had in MAP Out of Order auction this past week but I am going to have to hold off on that for my next post. This week on this day i just want to post a reflection post. This day is the 41st anniversary of the death of the great Dr. Martin Luther King.

When I think about it, I try to visualize the thoughts on the mind of the people who were alive at that moment. What was going through their minds at that time? I mean we have heard stories and we have seen things that show accounts of that day but how did society really feel. I wonder if Dr. King were alive today would he think that his dream was realized or if there was work still left to do. We will never know but we can still keep on carrying out the legacy that he left us with.

That's all I have for you guys this week. I am going to finish this post different this week. I am not going to sign off but I am going to leave you guys with a clip of Dr. King's last speech...
