Anyway, recently this text based almost art form returned to me when I started participating in the weekly drawing challenge and it happened, as it often does, that the images needed a word or ten to complete the story. As synchronicity would have it I came across a book in the library last week called "more things like this" which is a collection of text based art in a wide range of styles. Among them my hero Leonard Cohen http://www.leonardcohenfineart.com/ who has always produced quirky little drawings with comments, and another artist who's work I should have been more aware of so I looked her up - Maira Kalman http://www.mairakalman.com/ and found a delightful inspiration although I can only dream of being so prolific or so free to express the blurvage (new word - blurt/verbiage) in my head. I also came across a video where she makes reference to a favorite Bach cantata "ICH HABE GENUG" which translates to I HAVE ENOUGH or, as I have painted, posted and seriously considered tattooing on my forehead, I HAVE EVERYTHING I NEED. Isn't it lovely the way thoughts and ideas float freely around the world and come back to you in so many different ways?
Have a lovely, creative weekend all. Fame and fortune coming your way.
