I’ve re-arranged a few sections from my original posting of these excerpts to emphasize both the excerpt and my new added commentary in this new series. My goal is to post M-F each week, with exceptions due to weather or other unexpected happenings, positive or negative, lol! 😊
Commentary on 02.24.21
It’s morning in the story, a story set in one day with flashes of memories and moments from the previous multitude of decades, and Arturo’s reflecting, anew it seems, as it seems to myself with my own work, how at times, one’s own creative work is “as new” to him as if from another artist. I’ve no real idea if this is common, a little common, or just plain uncommon, lol, to other artists. Most my life I’ve had to work in unrelated art fields as I created art, and lately, with the pandemic, even more isolated from other artists, and so the reason I think I’ve no idea about this “as new” phenomenon I experience, and frequently enough it still surprises me with its suddenness and occurrence. The sensation only lasts a few moments, except for a few rare pieces I still ponder, decades later when I gaze on them, and then I’m remembering feelings I released with the pigments, even events happening in my life at the time. Art is such an experience, for viewer and artist, but the artist has so much – for his or her own work – that’s available, often surprisingly so. And then it’s time to make new art 😊
To make posting my series of excerpt tweets for my novella, The Old American Artist, easier for me to post regularly (Mon-Fri), and quicker for folks to see and read, I created a reference post/page with “lots” of info that can easily be reached there 😊
That includes info on or about :
- Intro to this series
- Tweet itself on Twitter
- The image art for my cover, my painting, San Antonio Riverwalk
- About my art and it’s relationship to this literary fiction work
- The numbering system I’m using in the tweets (and why)
- Hashtag #OldAmericanArtistExcerpts – why I use it in my tweets
Thanks so much! ❤️
