closeness to finished art – spin of abstract
finger paint 1 – Dan Beck – digital painting / digital art – 2007
Things happen sometimes all at the same time. Discussion of the distance between artist and finished product – how digital feels different than the closeness of paint. I don’t know if this is true – but it is something an artist friend and I have been discussing in relation to different work I have done.
Suddenly – a good wrench is thrown in – a laptop gift – a trade-show prize that was generously given to me by the woman of my dreams. Damn – I sound like I am blogging.
At least it seems that way at the time. I am a firm believer in the emotion of the process of creating art coming through in to the finished painting.
Digital art is not nearly as physical as sculpture for instance, but it is not without emotion. Brushes come in different lengths – an artist steps in and steps back – just like a viewer might.
And paintings should work from all directions – so they say.
