This morning I went to our art discussion breakfast meeting. We talked about all sorts of things...and we showed work that we've done recently. (To see the art we brought, go HERE). This afternoon I watched a program about the movie "The Life of Pi". It reminded me that I have painted a couple of tigers. Tigers can be considered a kitschy subject...and though I signed this, I later determined that it's not good enough for a frame. I kept it despite the throw away project. What moved it almost out of kitschy territory was the use of purple and blue, but almost only counts in horseshoes! (not sure what I'll do with the tiger, but it did escape the trash can).
The evening brought another art meeting of The Columbia River Art Group. A lot of the talk centered around framing. What did we decide? Traditional or contemporary frames can significantly change the overall attitude of the painting.
That was my Thursday.......did you have an artful day?
