I like how the deadline for EOW is not at the beginning or end of a week. Thursday really is a good day for me to start a new project.
Finished. Could use more touch-ups but I really should be doing schoolwork now
Every time you turn down a different alley, it's like a different world.

If the world were only inhabited by artists, what would this artistic utopia be? Land, air, and the natural resources that we depend on would be devoted solely to artistic creation and everything that comes with it.
The art of it all. The metropolis.

or what if everyone on earth, now, realised that we are all artists in the truer sense of it - and 'creative person' took on a new meaning

in reality we are all already artists, whether it's painting pictures or cleaning floors, each and every one of us are a master of their own craft, the only diference is some are better than others , after all who has the right to say what is art and what is not

having gone to an art school i am reminded of artwork everywhere. not just hanging on all of the walls, but leaning against the walls, rolled up charcoal drawings on the floor , sculptures in the corner, sketchbooks lying around. but everyone was very respectful , so despite the sort of haphazard placement artwork, nothing was ever really damaged. there would be PILES of drawings waiting to be graded in classrooms, and the drawing horses ( those sort of little benches with a bit to lean a drawing board against) were splattered with gobs of old dry paint . the smell of art supplies was everywhere, like opening your artbox and taking a deep breath. there were also couches in the halls and people would sort of sit/ lie in them but also across/atop/against each other as well. there were a great many talented people , but also a number of pretentious hacks slathering paint and pretending that they were great. a balance of arrogance and openmindedness. lots of really sort of ARTSY people, but all of the REALLY talented artists were really down to earth , normal, interesting people ( in some cases sort of eccentric or zoned out). there would always be SOMEONE drawing or painting or getting ready to paint, or stretching and gessoing canvas. certain areas smelled like paint, others like clay or photo developing solution . it was a kind of organized mess.
it was sort of like an artists city, but there were only a few hundred of us. i guess you could just take this and make it bigger. i hope i sort of helped get across the feeling for those who have never been to an artschool.

AntiMatty, good descriptions, both physical and philosophical. The smells are what you remember the most I think. Funny. Still, I'm one to think you dont have to go to an art school specifically to understand artists...
grenogs, I'm inclined to agree...dare we forget writers, actors, dancers, etc?
In the city of artists, inspiration is key.

I'm thinking more along the line of diversity. People obviously all have different opinion on what exactly is art, and the city of artist would do well to provide each distinctive, art-crazed crowd with their own little quirky districts.
Considering how strongly some people feel about their definition of art, there might even be district wars where half-finished sculptures and palette knives get thrown back and forth. Now that would be entertaining.

Unless I finish what I haven't even started yet tonight, I'm sittin' this one out. Something about this whole "Thanksgiving" thing has kinda drained my free time. I wonder if they have holidays in the artists city. Or if they even need 'em.
November 20th, 2007 #22
i guess it will push me to finally test myself at speed painting...something i still havnt grasped yet.
Is thanksgiving the reason theres only 1 wip this week? dont the Americans get a holiday for that?...which means more art time no!?
November 20th, 2007 #23
Ditto for me too, I have done quite a few in a row so far, I need a little break also I have one or two other Paintings I want to finish.
I will be watching and voting though, cant resist, EOW and all you guys ROCK!
