Passionate consumption


Isn't it just so true how we as artists are so passionate about our art that it consumes us? All I want to do is paint. Still in pjs assessing yesterday's work under a lamp light as the tropical storm makes the northern light a little too dark this morning. I ponder Moon's shared stories that her native home is no longer part of her country of Korea, it is now China. In listening to the rain fall I come across "Artist's Pointed Critique Is Barred From Beijing" By DAVID D'ARCYAugust 21, 2008 The Wall Street Journal. Interesting chain of events. I couldn't help it, on face book I became fans of Dara and Michael.

Her jacket and the background color is so vivid and lovely. I can see the passion in her eyes. I enjoyed looking back at your progress. You've taken your art to another level. I hope to be there someday.

Your artwork is beautiful! I love the colours and emotion in this piece. Bravo!

Btw, thank you for commenting on my blog. Eat, Pray, Love is indeed a great read....I've just started reading the section on her Indonesian experience.

so true, it's amazing how little sleep you can function with when you are inspired. Thank you for stopping by my blog which led me to yours. Your connection to color and light is so impressive in your painting.

Hi Robin --
Love love love her hair ..glad you could work with the windy weather -- it can be unsettling for us creative types! Keep us posted on the journey with Moon... BTW thanks for looking at my art -- I appreciate your kind support :)

Wow! This portrait is so bright and dramatic, yet solemn. I want to know what she's thinking, she looks so pensive. Using all of that red in the background is so unusual, but you have made it work and it's beautiful.
