DAILY ART FIX: OLD PAINTBRUSHES AND THE ART OF SPLINTERS

Art world links which caught my eye…

Reblogged from Michele Bledsoe’s blog The Secret Kingdom

My wife was so enraptured by painting, she was playing through the pain.

A Splintery Work in Progress by Michele Bledsoe

.

I had been painting for quite a while

before I reluctantly acknowledged

the sharp, needle-like pain

at the base of my thumb.

I poked at it a couple of times..

Yup. It hurt..

and I started painting again.

Eventually, I realized it was a splinter

from one of my favorite

worn-out old paintbrushes.

After my husband removed it..

I picked up my splintery brush

and got back to work.

  1. O/T what “is” art to an individual is one of the most personal of things, therefore impossible to delineate. Of course that doesn’t stop the hordes from attempting just that.

  2. That’s kinda what I’m getting at, art is such a individual’s personal thing that putting it into words in a way doesn’t matter. If it’s art to a person, it maybe art to others but there’s no assurance that it isn’t junk to everyone else. The old ” One man’s treasure is another man’s trash” thing. Well all of that should be completely incomprehensible!
