I prefer the title, “Scorched Wings of Icarus.”
How about you?
Palette Knife Abstract
I know which title is more ‘relatable,’ more ‘informative’ to the reader.
But which one is likely to generate more, readers’ interest?
Scorched Wings of Icarus
How is anyone supposed to figure out what’s actually in the post with a title like that?!
Interesting, but too abstract and open ended, maybe so.
But secretly, I like this title far better.
I know, I know!! You’re an artist, creative, imaginative. And your mind just works that way.
I can hear you, say these things.
As well as, “We want to know what we’re clicking on, First!”
This abstract was inspired and influenced by a few things, people and articles I’ve been reading recently.
David Kanigan Miracle. All of It.
This photograph with the blazing scarlet sun and the excerpt from Franz Kafka speaking of ‘flying too close.’
Yes. They were definitely influencers.
David Kanigan seems to always come up with some thing, new or intriguing, or uplifting or just plain humorous for his readers.
Check out his website, I love his writing – he writes really well.
Anyway. Go look through his posts.
Be uplifted. Laugh. Smile. Cry. Be humbled. Breathe in Life.
Aquileana at La Audacia de Aquiles an impressive website focusing on Mythology. Making it modern, entertaining, easy to read, and Fun!
I’ve been reading her articles for quite some time and always, look forward to the extremely comprehensive and educated efforts she puts forth.
Referenced, with photographs, art works, historical sources, collaborations,etc., my 5 Star website to go to for mythology info.
I’ve been especially interested most recently in The Titans.
Who they were, there origins, and who came before them.
Aquileana’s site provides revealing glimpses into the mythical lives of the Greek and Roman gods and goddesses, The Titans, Olympians, The Muses, The Furies and more. All, richly described in intimate and living color.
A revealing read, Icarus’ Fall….
Matthew Snowden, palette knife Artist
The knife can be a blessing or … not.
Beginners often go in too heavy handed.
However that is certainly not the case with Snowden.
He uses the palette knife with sensitivity. Delicacy.
And a Bold Decisiveness where and when it it called for. I most definitely enjoyed his paintings, the slathering on of paint, the sure and swift marks made with the knife.
So strong. So beautiful.
And the last influence.
I needed a brief respite.
As I’m still plugging away at my rather large post describing/explaining the Zen art “Enso.”
I almost, want to bin it.
But no I won’t, too much is invested now.
You’ll see it, then probably wish you hadn’t, its way too long!
