For Christmas I decided to make a painting for Hannah in the style that she does most of her drawings in. It’s not an easy style for me, but I attempted it anyway. I started with some drawings and then decided on this floral design. It was fun to try and draw in her style and add my own touch as it went along.
Normally when I go downtown, I don’t expect to find something new. I’ve been around that area quite a lot and I’ve shot a ton. But tonight I found this. A very nice portrait of Mr. Kurt Vonnegut. For those of you who do not know who he is, he was an author from Indianapolis. He wrote Slaughterhouse 5, Cat’s Cradle, Sirens of Titan and much more. I love his works and find him fascinating. And tonight I found this very large portrait and was able to shoot it. I really don’t know how I missed this.
Every year the Penrod Arts Fair is held for one Saturday and it is the best art fair I have ever been to. It’s held on the grounds of the IMA and it has artists and organizations from all over the place. It’s been a tradition for me to go every year and this year I got to take Hannah. She hadn’t ever been and she had a lot of fun. She got to help paint a part of this painting which was going into a local bar.
Art is a diverse range of human activities and the products of those activities; visual arts, performing arts, decorative arts, applied arts, fine arts & creative arts. Art may be characterized in terms of expression, communication of emotion or other qualities. Express yourself. Do your thing. Photography is my thing. My art. I love seeing the world abstractly.
I didn’t catch the gentleman’s name as I didn’t want to interrupt his groove, but he was well into his ‘art’. I sat and watched his intensity for a bit after I captured this photo.
Thank you to all of you who share your art and express yourselves.
