computer art

What the heck is she up to now? See, I had some primer left over from my door and door frame painting project and needed to use it up on something. (Then later I tried to wash my hands and brush with soap and water, forgetting it was oil-based paint ... doh!) I'll tell you more later, but as I told a friend yesterday, "It's a con-sepsually dense installation project in utero" ... or some other such crap. Must be because I spent Saturday evening sweating blood over the dreaded artist's statement.

I'm all about the pictures these days as the words mostly suck. Sorry. I'll get my mojo back soon I hope.

Is that what happens to a computer when it gives up the ghost?

Even when you are not feeling particularly articulate, you make me laugh - both verbally and visually.

Don't you hate writing artist statements? I took mine up with me a few years ago to our annual retreat (see today's blog entry for elaboration) - BAD idea! It so 'stuck' me that it was days before I could paint again. Not really good usage of 'relaxing' retreat time!

Good luck!

I think most people talk to listen to themselves and it's usually just rambling anyway which, I sometimes do enjoy.I think keeping it to the point is the best way to go.What an awesome white computer you have there Andrea ! :)

Are you making a statement concerning how we as a society try to 'whitewash' the tragic, pathetic situation unfolding before our very eyes;
how humans in the 21st Century resorted to the relatively controlled environment of blogging in lieu of participating in actual intercourse with others in the rw?

WW: "Occupy yourself" -- isn't that what they strive to do in mental institutions?

Kyk: Hmmm... now THAT'S conceptually dense. I like it -- how can I use it...

Sally: Maybe it's over at your blog? :)

Susan: It's those public spaces that are at fault. They want evidence that you can THINK, too. :)

Cherry: Even when it's finished you probably won't get it, but then neither will I.

Nomad: Oh, that hurts.

Tara: bad girl! Writing artist's statements is definitely NOT a vacation activity.

Sheri: Thanks. I did it myself. :)

HE: Why .... yes! (Can I use that?) :)

Painters know the RW is very much over rated :P
I think you are making the computer look as common as bathroom fixtures, as opposed to the exclusive magic box of a select group of users.
