Interesting picture, do you do more?

I do it all.

Ok, seriously, what could be the meaning of "more"?

olympiada said...

I mean do you work in other mediums?

I don't tend to do a lot in what would academically be called the "fine arts". But every so often, something must be expressed and I believe it is the sacred duty of all to do art.

A very nice painting which somewhat reminds me of John Lennon's style.

my first reaction, Jim, is "oh gosh oh gosh oh gosh, NO!" because of course JL was so TALENTED! I've never considered myself thusly. Except with horses. Anyway. But then I got to thinking about it and, we're just looking to express something, all of us, mine down to the truth, share, BE. I get the impression that JL knew some stuff like that. So thank you very much!

Mostly I consider my artwork to be making cheese and preserves and tending chickens and children, and then also making some practical things, crafts. I really like the whole crafts way of expression.

To paraphrase St. Paul, There are it may be so many arts in the world, and none of them is without signification.
