I'll be back with actual words again soon.

Thanks for the photo, CozCoz.

I still think that some painting is not about messages... It is about relaxing and letting the mind roam...

Cream,
I share your opinion, even though I hadn't even thought about the artist who created that "message" wanting to imply that art is about message, quite to the contrary. You may be able to paint a landscape for example, that you may fail to express in words. Period.

(I cancelled the above comment: only correcting myself, nothing else.)

I love this! Looking forward to your wordy return. :)

If this means you've been painting, I am glad for your silence. I hope it's going well!

But, paint you must, and I am happy about that. However, I love your words, too.

But if it could be painted then there won't be a need for words.

I couldn't agree more. That whole 'picture-worth-a-thousand-words' thing really applies, at least in some instances. There are some feelings and depth and mystery that it is just not possible to verbalize.

Not just writing or painting, but a larger message (to me) that there are many ways of expressing soemthing and you limit yourself when you stick with only one. Too bad I can't paint! So words and photos for me, I guess.

Cream: Reasons for painting are as probably as numerous as painters, don't you think? And Merisi: I like the way you put it: painting being used as a medium to express something words cannot convey.

HMBT & Ian: Thanks for the moral support, but words fail me right now. :)

Carla: Drawing, mostly, with ideas germinating for new painting. Fortunately.

Ces: Are you playing devil's advocate? :)

Tara: Just so.

CS: I think it's kind of sad when some people don't even choose one.

i really like this quote, anderea, and to see it spray-painted on a sidewalk (or whereever) makes it all the cooler.

it's amazing that creative souls rarely stick with one medium. seeing all kinds of possibilities is what art is all about, huh...

best to you,

kj

Well said.

Oh how I love to paint

I fear I'm the odd one out here, but if there's one artistic discipline that I'm just no good at it's painting. No idea why.

Maybe that's why I married a painter.

Like the others, I hope you're off painting somewhere. :)

That is degradable paint? I have a patent pending on a contraption that paralyzes a Tagger's 'peter pointer' for about six months...or until it grows back.
Fingers DO grow back right?

"no need to paint" ... or to take a photo either. :)
