For me it’s loopstation battles. 

Here’s a sample:

You could feel the tension in the air.

Are you speaking of appreciation of others' work, or our own endeavors, or both?

Haven't done 'any art myself recently.
Lately been observing the same old art I usually do, YouTube videos.

I would like to find a Picasso in a junk shop.

I could sell it and retire.

Certainly wouldn't want it on my wall.

Wouldn't mind a Klimt though.


"Art" is one of those all encompassing words.

Some might say that there is an art to everything.


Is art the vision or the acquired skill?

Or perhaps the vision, plus the innate skill.

Or perhaps the power to inspire

Or is it as simple as slopping a bit of colour about on a wet afternoon.

Or..........

So this is music, but I think that music is one of the originator's of expressing art - so.... here's music I've recently gotten into

Lovejoy - really good band

I've had little luck with contemporary art, let alone freelancers on social media. My class is currently on Frida Kahlo but it's pretty boring. I'm currently stuck with Childe Hassam. His art leaves just enough for me to imagine stories. i'm not really sure what to do with art other than to dream things in them. I wanted to browse hindu art online but the english translations were less than acceptable (and the textbooks were behind a paywall).

In my opinion....Hassam was reasonably adept at putting paint to canvas, but a bit of a copyist.

And Kahlo was a  bit of a narcissist, but her work has the visual appeal, that Hassam's lacks.


To be honest, I don't think that one can be taught art.....One can be taught technique and indoctrinated with other peoples ideas. 

Though I would suggest that art is not so much about what other people do, but about what you think.

Otherwise art just becomes marketing and business.
