What would you rather be?


Everyone has thought about what they would like to be in their lives and careers. Artists are no different. We all dream about what level of success we’d like to achieve in our careers. So I thought it would be interesting to put together a career poll for artists.

Which Way Is Up?

Which way should this painting hang.? Take the poll.

There is an amazing amount of unfinished or discarded work in my studio. This is one of my few attempts at sculpture, and it has been in my studio in this unfinished state for several years now. I’ve thought about throwing it out, and I’ve thought about taking it apart, and I’ve thought about finishing it. Mostly I use it as a paper weight, but is it treasure or junk?

My idea for Aprils daily studio photograph is to record objects that are found in my studio. Some of the objects are treasures, and some are junk, and others could be either. In this case there is a pile of old yogurt containers that sit on a work table in my studio.  What do you think?

So What Do You Think?

This painting is nearing completion, and though I have an idea for how the painting should hang, I would like to know what you think. What way should this painting hang?
