Stick Figure

“Stick Figure”

I’m not really certain how I got to this little figure, that is, I just started painting without a pr-conceived idea and it evolved on its own. When I stopped trying and thinking, it worked out.

Its a quiet painting.

Whoa and artist Vik Muniz

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

I just realized I have not posted here in a month. I can hardly believe it. I’ve been so busy with things I have had little time for art. Need to change that, soon.

I watched a documentary about artist Vik Muniz and his collaboration with the pickers of Brazil. Profound way of making art. I am touched by humility and people who find happiness inside.

We are blessed in this country and its easy to be wasteful. We have so much to be grateful for. Even the poorest people in this country have more than some of the poor in other countries.
