Have I lost my creative touch?
“Ok I am in a slump... I painted about 100 pictures in the first 3 months of this year...now nothing.. I can't even make myself paint or draw... suggestions anyone, how can I get it back?”
go on a backpacking trip.. somewhere with good views/lookouts”
“hmmm my favorite thing to draw would be people...
hey you gave me an idea I will take a sketch pad with me on this trip this weekend..draw some of the tters there”
“see there! This place is Great!”
“got to put that on my list... yeah that will help me just relax and try to get back in the swing of thing”
“I'm so smart”
“Speak for yourself, Wobbly!”
“You could paint a picture of a butt, that has a painting of a butt on it.”
“I had a "designer" block a couple month ago. Couldn't think of anything... stress...too much stuff on your mind....”
“butt with a butt...
well I could just draw someone smoking.. same difference?
However wanted posters of tters...hmmmm”
You have got me thinking...”
“I think your right Gemini, usually all I have to do is sit down with paint and pallet and go to it...things just pour out... and lately too much stuff is going on... I could do a running of all the tters...w/their trail name of course.”
“"If Found Within The Limits of This City after Sundown, You Will Be Invited to a GRAND NECK-TIE PARTY, The Expense of which Will Be Borne by 100 Substantial Citizens....."
“hmmm ok you lost me Tilt”
“For the Wanted Posters, donchaknow, <G>”
“Hey clem, I got an idea for you to get you out of your painters slump. Dip your brush in liberal amounts of paint while watching a John Kerry speech, and see if your paintbrush can keep up with each flip and flop as he talks. Get ready for some quick action. If the painting doesn't come out that great, at least you got some good wrist excercise in the process. Good luck.
WEll Buck that would work if I was really into Kerry, I would rather not listen to him just a like a bad singer I push mute or turn the chanel.”
“When I blanked I used to do blind contour drawings of one of my hands in my sketchbook or go take polaroid photos of random things.”
“So Clem, got any new artwork up on your webshots account?”
“yup I do as a matter of fact
“Cool, are you an Alice Neel fan by chance?”
“Your line quality reminds me of here for some reason.
“I really like VanGosh, Marry Cassatt and Monet”
“In your pieces I see some Ernie Barnes do you remember him? The guy that painted for Good Times sitcom.”
“When that happens to me, I just get a quart of tequila and a box of crayons.
I tend to produce a lot of "art" during those episodes.”
“Chili you have any of those creations on your webshots album?
I bet they are abstract...”
“Most of them wind up on the floor or the wall.”
“ohhh an abtract artist for sure”
“Listen to music or watch a really emotional movie. Brings the emotional creativity to the surface. Maybe a weekend hike to get perspective?”
“Mommy used to stick my 'art' up on the fridge door. ;-)”
“Don't Drink and Draw ----”
“How about if I just drink a little since I did get a suggestion to drink and draw...:o)”
“Clem, you anywhere near New York?
Set up an easel in Times Square and you will painting like wildfire. You may even sell a bunch of 'em!”
I am in Charlotte NC.. and you don't wanna do that here.”
“Tell ya what. You set up on the square in Charlotte and I'll come down from Ohio with my guitar and I'll wear nothing but boots, a cowboy hat and my new polypro undies and pose for my portrait and we'll BOTH make some money! The Singing Naked Cowboy of Charlotte!”
“Too bad, Clem. I was serious, too...
You could even paint the Naked Cowboy”
“Nigal, I can't believe you said that. That is too funny!”
“SEE? We'd be rich rich rich!”
“And only like 52 seconds before you posted. SCAREY! It's like we're psychic friends or somethin'.”
“I like that Tilt!
Hmmm sounds pretty good Nigel...but I would like a photo of you before I agree ;)
sound fair? Never painted anyone naked before...hmmm what's safe for skin?”
“See, we can agree on something!”
“I'd even slip ya $20 to, how shall I say it, "embellish" a bit?”
“Hmmm all depends on how much embellishment I have to do...you know it may be a bigger charge!
Yup Treebeard your right!”
“"See, we can agree on something!"
Yes, we will always have the Naked Cowboy to bind our souls together I guess.
"Hmmm all depends on how much embellishment I have to do...you know it may be a bigger charge!"
Ok! OK! Make it $40 then!”
you got it”
“Nigal, you don't want her to make your stomach larger do you”
