Secret Reading Room






8"x12" Pigment ink on 11"x14' Bristol board.


Do you sometimes wish nobody knows you in the blogs? That you can just paint and draw and share it, yet no one knows who you are. Wouldn’t that be wonderful? I like to be like that. I don’t know if it is possible to be unknown after getting into the blogs and making friends. I love my blog friends. I will be very sad and unhappy if I lose a few very special ones. Yet, sometimes I long to be anonymous and free with my art, then I sucker myself into creating online galleries and public pages. What the heck!? Sigh*

I have been thinking of that but I realize that it may be easy to spot my style. So I tried to paint in a different style. I wanted to draw in a primitive manner. I started drawing the animals and instead of making them look primitive, I ended up drawing them like weird creatures and totally juvenile. Then later, I went back to my old style of squiggling. Sigh*

I thought of starting a new blog and be anonymous, forget about this blog and my gallery blog but then my friends may wonder what happened to me. Well the secret is out. I have disappeared and now I am unknown.

If only.

Hahahaha!

Gros bisous à toi.

why do you wish to be unknown? more time for art? more freedom in your expression?

yes, you most certainly have a style... i find that so interesting about things we do in life, so many people seem to have a style.

i completely enjoyed taking to heart this piece as well as your blog header.

Non, il n'est pas trop tard. Je peux être inconnu, mais il exige beaucoup de courage et de force et je suis faible et vain. Il est dans la manière d'être juste. Je veux juste dessiner et à peindre comme je l'ai toujours fait et j'ai été heureux.

TSUP!

I just want it to be the way it was. I just painted and draw and no one really cared. But maybe that was selfish, yes?

I think I understand your feelings on this. Art blogging creates a certain sense of expectation, or obligation sometimes. But we should remind ourselves that this pressure is really self-imposed, and try to create art as fearlessly as if we were unknown. So, I say Paint! and Draw! and pretend no one is looking. Of course, we have the freedom to create all day and stash it away in a drawer...we'd certainly be anonymous that way! I'm glad you're posting...I would miss you!!

There's my spot! Up in the tree with a book! (In real life I would fall out of the tree and break something.) Sarah speaks wisely - we do put expectations on ourselves. I also think we have choices all the time, and there is rarely a truly perfect choice. So, if you were to go back before all your expectations, when no one really cared, it might feel great! But you'd also be missing your wonderful community of art blog friends - and it seems you have quite a few! And one more thing, if you were to go back, you might discover it was not as carefree as your memory would like you to believe.

I am always amazed by the depth and detail of the foliage. And the lovely light values. I am working toward being as patient as you must be. One day (maybe)!

p.s. Sorry for the long comment. But this is the last thing, (really)! It's ok to be selfish once in a while. ;)

Ces, I would know your work anywhere. And if you were to disappear, I would truly miss you!

Such a gorgeous drawing. I hope you never hide from us.

Helena Milton said...

I go along with the others and I hope you stay here for us all to read and enjoy your wonderful art.

Love that secluded reading spot! And how your drawings are always a feast for the eyes! So much to look at!! You'd better not be going anywhere, Ces!! I'd miss your detail & your whimsy!

no, not selfish
art is completely personal
do with it as you wish
for me, my art is more complete when others take it to heart
there are no rules with art
that is one thing i love about it
