Art is not about difficulty,

Art is about Vision & Concept

Basic Questions

What, Where When, Why & How…

There was a thread on “Craigslist Arts Forum” “don’t ask, “Why?” beware asking, “How?” stick with, “What…?” “Why?” leads inexorably to paradox. “How?” traps us in a universe of causality. Both deny the ininite. “What…?” sharpens the scalpel of reality.”

My Response:

Why?” is not a question without meaning, usefulness or danger as you assert. 

“How ?” can be the answer to “Why”… although it can be a question on its own of great value. 

“Where ?” & “When ?” you don’t even mention. 

And the All important Question for You is “What?” 

And to that your answer is that Nothing Exists. 

So tell it to Einstein that his formula fails because it doesn’t deny the existence of Matter. [1]

Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the the universe. Albert Einstein [2]

“As an actor,”

“you may do things that aren’t politically correct. Unless you’re an actor who only does things for political reasons.”

“I believe if we don’t do the good, bad, and the ugly, we’re not going to progress.”

Quotes: Genocide & War quotes

We used to wonder where war lived, what it was that made it so vile. And now we realize that we know where it lives…inside ourselves.
~Albert Camus

War is organized murder and torture against our brothers.
~Alfred Adler

You’ve got to forget about this civilian. Whenever you drop bombs, you’re going to hit civilians.
~Barry Goldwater

When will mankind be convinced and agree to settle their difficulties by arbitration?
~Benjamin Franklin

Either man will abolish war, or war will abolish man.
~Bertrand Russell
War does not determine who is right, only who is left.
~Bertrand Russell

It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong.

Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities.
All murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets.

Kissinger Chile

1973 Chilean coup d’etat

I don’t see why we need to stand by and watch a country go communist due to the irresponsibility of its people. The issues are much too important for the Chilean voters to be left to decide for themselves.
~Henry A. Kissinger Kissinger

America’s Promise

“What — what is that American promise? It’s a promise that says each of us has the freedom to make of our own lives what we will, but that we also have obligations to treat each other with dignity and respect.

It’s a promise that says the market should reward drive and innovation and generate growth, but that businesses should live up to their responsibilities to create American jobs, to look out for American workers, and play by the rules of the road.

Ours — ours is a promise that says government cannot solve all our problems, but what it should do is that which we cannot do for ourselves: protect us from harm and provide every child a decent education; keep our water clean and our toys safe; invest in new schools, and new roads, and science, and technology.

Our government should work for us, not against us. It should help us, not hurt us. It should ensure opportunity not just for those with the most money and influence, but for every American who’s willing to work.

That’s the promise of America, the idea that we are responsible for ourselves, but that we also rise or fall as one nation, the fundamental belief that I am my brother’s keeper, I am my sister’s keeper.

That’s the promise we need to keep. That’s the change we need right now”

Barrack Obama from his acceptance speech as the Democratic nominee for President of the United States.

Making Art is About Choices

Classifying and Defining… that is not ANTI-Creative [maybe that’s a name for an Art Movement, the ANTI-CREATIVES who will become the “ANTIS” not to be confused with the Aunties !] 

When one draws, one defines the space 2-dimensionally and makes hundreds if not thousands of choices in a short span of time. 

When one paints, one adds color to the mix making the choice options endless [Is that MIXISM?]


All misunderstood, most are disliked by the general public and argued about endlessly by Artists. 

When working as a graphic artist/illustrator I had a client say to me, “We will have no Cubism here.”
