HNW on Thursday - HOBBIES


This might be a long one, with lots of pictures. [Tease!]

It's really more about my art hobby. I love create. I say in my profile that I am an artist... because I DO ART. Not professionally; though I've taught ...that's professional, right?

My art is considered "Whimsical" in the respect that 's not realistic - I don't think I have the patience be realistic.

's a very personal journey for me.

I do for the exploration and the "therapy" of . Most of what I'm posting is coming from personal art journals that chronicled my life at the time.
This is when I was rehabbing from a stroke.
So, yeah, this is kind of a very intimate post.

I love collage and mixed media, and include in most of my work.

These are entitled "Man-Handled" & "Camel Toe"

I don't usually have an end result in mind. I just start with a product and see where it goes.

I sometimes use found objects in my art to help convey my own personal symbolism: keys, bottles, different types of found scrap papers.

Sometimes I write poetry to go with it...ekphrastic poetry; in fact, I Iove the combination of the two. It's the process that is so relaxing.

I haven't created any art in a long time...other creative ventures have taken over my time and my space.

But, I hope come back someday.

Happy HNW, y'all!

Excellent stuff McBusti. I particularly like 'Man-Handled'.

You write well, and create well......is there no end to your talent?

Yes whimsical is a spot on description of your art. At the same time you obviously get great pleasure & inspiration from it all which I think is what one's passion should be all about. Great stuff.

If you scroll down to the end of your HNW post, under the comment box you will see your post number...[ post 4415842 ] without the space between brackets and numbers......copy and paste bracketed numbers [including bracket] into the comment box in the HNW group for said week.
I hope this helps!

That is some lovely Art you are showing. I have to say you look spectacular in that second picture. What a smile!
My GF Diane taught an art class for 6 years and has done art for a long time. She says she did a lot of it as therapy for many years. I am honored that she gave me one of her pieces to me for our anniversary. I understand how intimate it is for and artist to show their work. Especially when it was also therapy. When she let me go though her works to pick one out she let me be naked but unlike usual she stayed dressed. Said letting me look at her work make her feel naked enough without being unclothed.

If you see me in the real world, come say "Hi Justskin."

I always behave. Preferably not well.

Ha! I know how she feels!
I've taught Seniors at the Assisted Living Community I worked at. We had an art show every year I was there and the work of those folks was absolutely incredible! It was so good, that I would invite the local press in to view it. And some are still producing works into their 80s! I am awed by them!

I found a lovely chalk pastel, about 7.5 X 10 she did some time ago as I was browsing through a box of her efforts. Stopped me dead in my browse and I asked her if I could have that one. She asked me what I saw and I told her. Surprised her I think as she told me she did not think anyone would "get" that pic. She had it matted and framed and it is hanging on my bedroom wall. It is a rather sensuous pic without particular erotic overtones but definite spiritual ones. I would post it here but that gives FriendFinder-x the copyright. Also I would need her permission as I certainly would not do so without it. Actually even with it.

I don't really draw. Have tried to revive a decades old urge but seem to lack the inner fire to so so. Or just lack the inspiration to do it. A part of me would like to though. I am told I have an Artist's Eye. One of the things Diane and I talk about a lot is art, color, composition and the history of it all. Makes for interesting car rambles as we note views and discuss the color and how to improve the composition of what we see.

Impressive! I would love to see the rest of your portfolio. Have you done any shows?

Visual art, like musical art, lays your soul bare for all to see. It is a very vulnerable position. I understand how this could be your most intimate post!

I see you much more clearly now.

Whimsical is good; Realism is for photographers!

Avoiding photographic realism actually allows you to show that which is not seen with the naked eye. You can represent both the physical and the metaphysical in a painting, but not in a photograph. I prefer a painted portrait by a sensitive artist over a photo portrait just for those reasons.

No, no shows or exhibitions. Most of what I'm showing here is from a goofing around art journal Thanks for your comments and for understanding!

From Jim's friend-Love your art and that you too taught to Seniors. For me helping beginners start has been most rewarding. Love the Camel Toe and the first one a lovely face, really all. Hope you get back to it but maybe it gave you enough healing so you don't need it as much.

Hello Diane! Thank you for your comments! I think everything I do is some form of therapy, especially after my stroke. I'll write about that at some point. I've gone from arting to writing; this blog and poetry. It's mainly a matter of space--my art shed needs to be re-done but its full of vintage stuff to resell. That's been my focus of late. Thanks so much for commenting!
