The truth is, I have been horribly lazy about sitting and thinking and writing about art. I have been using Facebook to post images of work in progress. Last semester was a couple months of just pumping out all of the “junk” that was in me, as far as work goes. (That is not to say that I will not make some crap this semester, but I need to draw my focus in, collect my ideas to make something bigger, something cohesive.)

I suppose what I should show what I have been drawing inspiration from over the past couple months. I am lucky to be in classes still, but this is my final semester. There are no more assignments, no more real deadlines. It is just about me, my goals, and my work. So what have I been looking at to keep the drive going?

The House under the Ground by Paula Rego

Convergence by Drew Young

Flemish Proverbs by Pieter Bruegel

Rabbi with Torah by Hyman Bloom

Aspects of a Negro Life: Song of the Towers by Aaron Douglas

by Ignacio Zuloaga y Zabaleta

High Society by Cecily Brown

In Bed by Lautrec

Snowbed by Aron Wiesenfeld

That is the short version of what I have been looking at. I have been getting stack upon stacks of books from the library, as well as grabbing an art magazine from time to time. I hope you enjoy these images.

Look. Listen. Respond.
