When I was in art school the old guard macho painters always went on about their chops, alluding to the definitive arm gesture in the kata of painting. When a group of these predominantly old men got together for a few drinks it became a swaggering group of bragging balls out sad men. All leaning on one another seeing who had the ultimate trade mark swing, it was sad. However it is interesting that as a painter once I return from a sprint through the galleries looking at paintings I invariably find myself going over what I know and what I have just discovered. The painting below was one of those arm swinging moments, going over the chops.
Creative potency is the ultimate tool for social transformation and soul development, not just for the individual but for all those that surrender to it's power.
In my blog I am exposing the inner workings of my artistic journey in hopes of inspiring others and meeting
people on a similar path. If you have any questions, observations, requests, I will gladly oblige.
