Comments05/03/2017 #5 Claire L Cardwell#4 I thought it was truly spectacular and want one of my own. I think I will start scouting old cement factories this weekend.... I loved the high ceilings and the fact that a lot of the piping and vats were left in situ. I also noticed that the drawing office had bare walls. I don't have any pictures up over my desk either. I find it easier to plan a space looking at a blank wall than if there was a picture there. Have an awesome Sunday!

She can keep this Death Stare up for hours on end..... Recently she glared at poor Molly Zodwa for over two hours. She also bites all my guests. Only two people have ever come over unscathed. One of her favourite tricks is to lurk behind doors and attack you as you go past. I have to keep her pretty stoned on Catnip on many nights.19/03/2017 #33 🐝 Fatima G.

Comments17/02/2017 #3 Eeva Maria Al-Khazaali#1 artist talk used to be the essence of my life. Now days I live and work in a remote location so it's very rare for me to meet colleagues. I kind of miss it, but don't know if I should be looking for people in my network to start over the conversations once lost.
Sorry for the loss of your friends, Chas.09/02/2017 #1 Chas ✌️ WyattI am not exactly sure how to respond to your questions. I had a friend who was a mural painter who passed away in 2012. We use to talk at length about art (among other things) and its place in the world. I do miss those conversations. We also had a group of us who would meet for informal figure drawing sessions; I miss those, as well. I will leave you with this quote about art; "Art is the stored honey of the human soul, gathered on wings of misery and travail." ~Theodore Dreiser, Life, Art, and America, 1917.

Comments14/01/2017 #7 Preston 🐝 Vander VenGreat Write. To make our lives beautiful like art, we need to think outside the box of society. The culture today wants to limit us to be like drones or mindless sheep and follow the herd. There is no beauty there. I find the some of the greatest minds of those who still have their hearts of a child. Note: I did not say a mind of a child. The heart of a heart is limitless, with no borders. A child's imagination can solve any situation in the world. Yet, while growing up, society tells us to stop using this great gift and think in only one direction.

Dec 24, 2016 #21
Simply a clarification : all of what we produce in our lifetimes as creatives is "artwork" not "art". Artwork is the "thing" that we work on and produce as a product which can be purchased. Whether "art" emerges from that product is another matter all together. Painters, sculptors, dancers, writers all want to produce, one day, that humungously important work that reaches out beyond our navels and touches and moves others to the point where they are transfixed by the power emanating from that creation we have made. That's all we can hope for - that some of what we have made becomes motre than it appears to be in the beginning. Basically, money is never associated with "art"since art is un-buyable. As it is an enigma, a wondrous non-thing which is spiritual rather than physical, it cannot be bought. It is free to whomever looks upon it and is moved. Yes, we can buy the thing that holds the art (for example : the painting of the Mona Lisa belongs to the Louvre museum in Paris, but Mona Lisa "herself" belongs to the world - free and gratis. This is what “may” one day make our artwork valuable - i.e. : when it lives and breathes within others and beyond its physical self. Only then is there art. Only then are we "artists".
"17/03/2017 #32 Tiina HolliHello everybody. A new angle :
Here are two examples of what artists all over the world are up against and have always been.
My ponderings and point today : why is it, that it is so hard to understand that creative work is work, also when an artist is the creative worker ?
At the moment creative workers of all kinds are getting rights as workers amongst workers, and what do they do?
They are abusing artists' work.
Who else is stealing artists' designs in the internet, copy pasting it and presenting it to Zara etc as their own design then creative workers that are not creative artists themselves ?
Tsk tsk tsk.
First example to discuss in the theme Art and money :
a rip off of by some random nobody making money with a dead artist's work and name and fame :
Frida Kahlo Infiltrates the Snapchat Generation with a New Set of Emoji
Second example to discuss in the theme Art and money :
Could Blockchain Put Money Back in Artists’ Hands?
Thank you Eeva Maria for initiating this discussion !
What do you think ?25/02/2017 #31 Phil FriedmanEeva > "It's obvious to buy art one must be rather wealthy."
With all due respect, I believe your statement only applies if one mistakenly assumes that the only good art is that which has achieved notoriety in the "art world". There is much good art to be had and enjoyed for affordable prices, if one is patient, does not pay for big names, and buys to keep rather than for investment.
https://www.bebee.com/producer/@friedman-phil/a-look-at-my-personal-collection 30/01/2017 #24 Eeva Maria Al-Khazaali#20 I absolutely agree on your views of choosing carefully if you are going to be an artist. Of course, many in the creative industry say that money, numbers and figures are easily confused by the less corporate type in the art world, working more on the creative side of things on itself.
thank you for your inspiring story of collecting art. Maybe you would be interested in checking out the www.taiko.fi website offering Finnish contemporary art online for affordable pricing.24/12/2016 #21 Bernard PoulinSimply a clarification : all of what we produce in our lifetimes as creatives is "artwork" not "art".

Only then are we "artists".21/12/2016 #20 Phil FriedmanIt's necessary for would-be artists to face a couple of truths. Foremost, that not everyone who aspires to produce worthwhile art can do so. Yes, "beauty" (read artistic value) is in the eye of the beholder, but if it is only in your eye, consider taking up auto mechanics or some other trade, if for no other reason than to support yourself. Second, consider pricing your are so that it is affordable for ordinary people to own. My wife and I buy and display only original art in our home. We once bought a beautifully framed fairly large piece that we absolutely from the Miami artist Jeff Laibson for $800. We would not consider selling it, so have never had it valued, but I think it must be worth more than 10 times what we paid for it. Could not afford one now, but became big Laibson promoters because we could buy one then. IMO.21/12/2016 #19 Paul KemnerIt's tragic, but most university arts programs set their students up for failure. It's time the arts establishment got over the Salon de Paris, and put the narrative of the Starving Artist aside as a toxic product of 19th century Romanticism.
When making art for *any* audience is construed as selling out, it's time to reject that worldview. The barriers to finding an audience for your art/music/whatever have never been lower.
Educating the public that art or craft is worth paying for is a separate issue, and one that's particularly bad in the USA.21/12/2016 #12 Eeva Maria Al-Khazaali#6 You have a very romantic idea of artists. Many, who are cold hearted and yet passionate, professional and strict about it, might not want to compare vital bodily functions to the importance of work. But nevertheless, a good reply and nice that you wish me so well. Thank you!

Comments11/12/2016 #8 Mohammed Sultan#7 Thank you David..I wish your journey within different creative domains will eliminate the blockage in the pipelines of ideas.This will be a test for our future.When you thrive to uncover creative people in technology,education,entrepreneurship and venture management..etc you will encourage talent to release their potentials in cultures receptive to their ideas.The more you expand the span of your journey and interviews,the more you will discover that creativity is not a singular activity that needs to be put in a formal framework.Creativity is one of the components of the engine of value creation together with innovation and analytics.10/12/2016 #6 Mohammed SultanToday,our world is so rich in color,its rainbow of colors is defined by our creative domains and imagination,and is also is reflected in our own paths.Creativity always start with a proper and unique idea associated with the nature of its contexts in arts and science ,and also in business.The challenge is how to generate it ,develop it and apply it to the fullest extent.Creativity is an emotional activity and self-satisfying innovative process which has no limit.The only limit is in our imagination of how to insure a healthy level of our personal balance.People who find a balance between the depth of their skills and the challenges they face are more likely to expand their creative domain and become highly productive.Thank you @David Chislett for sharing the colors of your rainbow.
