The Aesthetics of Composition in Abstract Oil Painting

Today is November 5th, 2005, and it is my birthday.  To celebrate, I worked on an oil painting for the last three days straight through.  I completed it several hours ago.  I stared at my new work for several hours just thinking, and I decided to start a blog.

In the next few years we are going to talk about art, my life as an artist, my ideas about what art means to me, and who knows what else.  I honestly have no expectations about where this blog will take me and what I will be interested in over the course of the next five years or more.  I am not even sure that I will continue to blog in five years, but I am sure that I will still be working within the arts in some manner.  I am a frequent flyer of museums, and I will also be writing about what I see and what I like.

As it stands now, I am an out of work artist that is trying to find my own voice in modern art.  Not the first time you have heard that, its not going to be the last.  I tattoo, sculpt, paint in watercolor and oils, screen print, and build custom furniture.  I see myself as a compositionalist, as the composition of an oil painting is my main focus.

So if you are reading this, have no expectations, because I have no idea where this is going to take me.  Albeit, I do hope you enjoy my blog “The Aesthetics of Composition in Abstract Oil Painting.

Thanks for showing an interest in my work…
