I'm not sure if I'm ready (or him either) for the public unveiling yet, but I'll keep ya posted. It's still very much a work-in-progress. One little detail: he's also a (very talented) painter. It's nice that we have that in common.
Onto my latest painting/critique disaster... So for our next assignment we had to do a mixed media painting that was about the genre of decoration, which is something happening a lot in contemporary art these days. I just went on my merry way with an idea that incorporated a decorative element but was not solely about that. So I got kind of dissed in the critique again, while some butt-ugly paintings that were indeed solely decorative got praised! Do I sound bitter?
This painting is not finished, because the collage elements in the painting took hella-long to put together.
The irony is: this instructor is incredibly knowledgable. I think I can learn a lot from him. I'm just not getting the little ego strokes that I so desire, which sucks.
