Art is a product that is completely different than most products or services.
If you buy a painting, photograph, or sculpture it's probably because that work made an unconscious emotional connection.
There is the odd person who goes into a store and want to buy a light green drawing/painting because it goes with the wall color.
I guess environmental esthetics matter. But for me it is not the biggest concern.
There are lots of people who say they don't know anything about art but they know what they like. I guess it's kind of like that.
When I paint or draw - aside from the usual practice that I do it because I feel a connection with the subject matter or I just think - gosh it would be cool if.
I haven't been able to draw or paint as much as I would like of the last couple of weeks. I am working on something right now which is taking a bit longer than I would have expected. I have drawn a sketch and am trying to work it up in color.
I like drawing in pen and ink - one of my favorite things to do.
The drawing attached today is a sketch I did a few days ago of the Dayton skyline. I was at Octoberfest at the Dayton Art Museum and thought the skyline was stunning. It made an emotional connection with me.
I hope you enjoy.
