    #1 Merci Pascal. Just something I believe in strongly. The arts have always been a danger to the status quo, the politically correct and to governance. It is a world of watchdogs which tends to say what it sees and shares it with those who, at times, don't .

    #3 Thanks for tagging me @CityVP ๐Ÿ Manjit. I would have missed it as the feed is supersonic these days and anything posted in the Western Hemisphere is likely to get overlooked unless it is shared during my day. Always fascinated by the minds of artists. But for me, an artist can be technically brilliant, but just like singers, if they don't have soul, their voice/canvas will be will not be engaging. Looking through Mr. Poulin's artwork, I am taken in by the warmth. Absolutely delightful. The book sounds interesting indeed. I spent my early years reading books that provoked thought, upset, and disrupted. These days I prefer books that take me on a journey, like being a passenger in Disney's Small World. So no offence dear Bernard Poulin, I am however tempted by your Colored Pencil Techniques series!

    I was drawn in by the metacogntive attraction of the title of this buzz and then the graphic. Once I got reading, I noticed the word "nude" and I checked back a little for a moment thinking, I hope this is not bait and switch.

    No worries, this was a delight to read from top to bottom. While this buzz is about the authors book, the attraction for me here is the worldview of an artist. There is a chasm between the "studio world" and the "other world's".

    When it comes to "encouragement", I will draw a quick distinction in my own mind between the artist and the anarchist. The artist absolutely consumes and eats the object of their art - they pull from the very fabric of life, and so the artist takes in a lot to emit a little art. We only see the end product and not what went into the end product that is art.

    The anarchist is different, she or he does not want rules to be imposed on them and does not want to be told what to do, which for me is interesting in that there is a relationship that exists between the anarchist and art - one is about creating rules, which kind of paradoxical considering anarchists don't believe in rules - and so it seems that there is a split in the world of anarchists - but the link back to art is the paradoxical.

    So now I observe this buzz, just like a painting - a metacognition of Bernard Poulin. This observation is not for me one between the studio and the other worlds, it is the observation of many worlds I observe. I more am more than delighted to welcome Bernard to beBee, as I am delighted @Dean Owen lead me to Lyon Brave, likewise I welcome hearing Dean's observations regarding Bernard's buzz.

    I'm with Deb, intriguing Bernard. I'm an observer (and I do stare, but try not to get caught). I like to go to a local park and just observe people, try to decipher their expressions and overheard conversations. Ever notice how you can tell which ones are actually thinking, contemplating and those that just seem to walk through the world oblivious of all that is going on around them?
    In actuality I'm told I think too much...which never made sense to me.

    Thinking my own thinks is my definition of success - it says so right on my website. Along with the fact that I suspect that the meaning of life is to learn to use our own thinking equipment.

    A 2017 PonderI love artwork. As a product of individual creativity, it is everywhere. But I am more enamoured with, more tantalized by, more in awe of art because, despite all illusions to the contrary, its presence is more elusive, more rare than the rarest of...
