Thanks. I hope to infuse it with more emotion before it's finished. I'm interested in where representation and emotion meet. I am a fan of tonalism, and less so of impressionism. Not that I dislike impressionism, but I find much of it to be emotionally flat (Monet, Manet, Renoir). I wonder if that was a sign of the times when it first evolved. So pastoral.
In a good Michigan winter, you can get days where the wind and snow isolates you. It's dusk at 5PM, and the sun doesn't break through the clouds for days. Some people love summer all year round. Not me.
I usually try not to encourage people to pursue art...
Why is that?
