Today's assignment suggestion was 'signs'. Well....ok...but I was invited to this photography show at a local community college, and didn't have any time or daylight after, so I had to stretch the assignment to its broadest meaning. Here, this gallery of pinhole images, was a 'sign' that I need to keep experimenting with my images. Creativity is the key to make interesting pictures. Though I didn't care for many of the photographs on display in this gallery, it did inspire me to continue to look at art from different perspectives.
The painting above, which I found in a storage area is full of 'signs'. Clearly this work serves as a 'sign' that the artist is deeply troubled! ha. Below, the art work also serves as a 'sign' that interest can be generated with less color and with simple shapes. It also is a 'sign' that I too could paint! Ok, I'm being mean. I'm sure these talented students are as dedicated to their art as I try to be and I really do find both pieces to be interesting.
Thank you Trish for organizing this field trip. The show and the dinner which followed were fun!
