This painting is inspired by A Nos Pinceaux blog, one of my favorite blogs of art challenges. Evhe posted the photo of fish in the basket at French market in summer 2012, but only this February I could get to the image, stuck deep in my head for all this time.
Today I test web-service IFTTT. It is very simple, in comparison with its complex name. Now, when post is ready and I push "Publish" in my favorite Blogger, the post will be automatically duplicated in Tumblr, Flickr and Facebook. Of course you can duplicate manually (if you are interested to do it at all). But I always considered and proved with my actions that laziness is the main engine of progress.
I look forward to see
"I Remember Nothing" by Norah Ephron seemed full of banal and obvious statements when I started the book. But when I finished everything was different. Book is so wise and simple in a way when "simple" means experience and depth of talented, clever, funny and wise 69 years old woman, dying of cancer and knowing it.
"Art and Fear" by David Bayles and Ted Orland. It is about fears and doubts living in a head of the creator, about rivalry and originality. The book helped to realize that my reflections about artwork are on one wave with many artists - painters, writers, musicians, and that fear and doubt are serious enemies, but they can be overcome.
