Art Appreciation

 Want to increase your personal appreciation for art that others have created? Just try it yourself. BWAH HA HA HA HA HA HA

I consider this colored pencil drawing incomplete. The counter top needs improvement. And lets not even look at the cup handle (left side). Wait! I said lets not even look at it, okay? Instead, look at that apple. I like how the apple turned out.

It sure takes a lot of pencil to cover large areas of the background.

Phobe... I just saw a piece on Phobe Snow on Sunday Morning. Gawd, I love her voice. And the lyrics of her songs touch my heart each and every time. I am SOOOO glad she's back performing again. I remember when I was in my thirties I would play her songs over and over again. She's just awesome!! And what a strong lady. If you get a chance, check her out. If you like her, give her some support and buy her album. If you feel like it.

I like your drawing and if you hadn't pointed out the flaws, I wouldn't have noticed them right away. That is a good apple.

PS does have an incredible and alluring voice. She gave up her career to raise her disabled child. Amazing.

Thanks for mentioning Phoebe Snow. I might not have known she was making a come back if you hadn't. I love her voice also, and any singer that can have so much range in their voice.
I am going to try and draw. I just picked up some books from the library. But if I post something I draw, just lie and say it is wonderful...ok?
All of you pros make it hard on us amateurs. I say you never know what you can do until you try right?!
We'll see......

Oh yeah PS, I love her too....I'm going to check out some videos. Hey I like your drawing and what's interesting to me, is with the one photo, we now have three different versions! I think we need to start doing the art challenge again because I love seeing different interpretations. I like what you picked to put in your...

Yeah!! Brenda is going to draw and join in I hope...

PS... it took me a moment to get away from Post Script to Phoebe Snow. (I see I spelled her name wrong.. sorry Phoebe.) hahahaha

Ya Brenda... you go girl. Create some art. Make sure its fun for you. Don't try to impress others... it sucks the fun out of it. I gotta say, though, that if everyone lies about what you've created, when you do that masterpiece that is awesome, you probably won't believe people cause, you know, they've been lying to you about your other art. Just remember, everyone has different tastes. There are plenty of terrific artists out there that bore the crap outta me. Its the raw artists that can make me stop in my tracks. (raw art, folk art, outsider art... just means no formal training. And ain't that all of us. I think.)

oops I posted too quickly. Yeah, Sandy, I'm with you about the art challenge. I think I can get stuff uploaded, if I'm patient enough, so I'm up for it.

Do you want to go first?

Where did my eyes go first? To the handle on the cup. I would not have even noticed if you hadn't pointed it out. I like your version a lot and we should try to do challenges occasionally...helps us keep our hands in pencils and paints!

Good job..... BTW is that a frozen banana in the background??? I'm still laughing over your frozen banana story.
