Red face Re: July Fantasy and Sci-Fi Art Monthly Challenge and Chat!

Well, I guess my birthday present is here. Susie has been very mysterious about not letting me go to the mailbox, and today, she is almost indecently triumphant, clutching an Amazon box. "Is it all right for me to start getting the mail again" ?

"What? Yeah, whatever."

Re: July Fantasy and Sci-Fi Art Monthly Challenge and Chat!

Wow Pieter, that's quite the dream, should make an interesting and challenging painting.

Well Bill, now we will all be wondering what you're getting.

lol Dianna, if you sleep walk and dream about doing housework it might get done.

I can almost remember what I was dreaming about last night. Sometimes I can't remember until I see or hear something that will trigger the memory.

Re: July Fantasy and Sci-Fi Art Monthly Challenge and Chat!

Lol, I wish it worked like that. I do find cleaning very relaxing though!

Right now I'm occupied making pickle, pickles and more pickles.

Bill, that sounds fun! Susie, make sure you tease him enough for all of us.

Don' worry! He'll never guess, though he should, considering the many loud moans he has made about his current picture.

Omg, I hate cleaning. My house really needs it but I just don't have the energy or the patience. And then my husband will just walk through and make a mess again. And the dust just comes back in a couple of days.



Today all my energy will go into cutting grass. I hate that job too lol. I should have done it yesterday, it wasn't too bad out. The forecast says it will get hot again.

Re: July Fantasy and Sci-Fi Art Monthly Challenge and Chat!

We had a couple of nice cool nights but we're back to our normal heat.

I had a daytime nightmare, a bunch of turkeys went through my garden, they stomped some things and ate other things. They ate the tops off of all the onions, what a bunch of weirdos.

Re: July Fantasy and Sci-Fi Art Monthly Challenge and Chat!

Haha, I bet you do, Woody!

They ate both the onions and knocked down the garlic, I told my husband that if they get into the sage next, I'm going to assume that they're seasoning themselves and act accordingly..

They're eating the Japanese beetles which is good but they're so ungainly, they stomp on everything.

Re: July Fantasy and Sci-Fi Art Monthly Challenge and Chat!

I started something last night. Instead of sitting in bed with my iPad and watching other people paint like I usually do I took my stylus and painted.

Re: July Fantasy and Sci-Fi Art Monthly Challenge and Chat!

I love watching people paint. I find it so relaxing. When I'm having a bad day with the RA, I watch Bob Ross to relax.

I have a rambling sort of picture going on. It makes no sense except inside my head. I don't know if I can explain it in a way that makes any sense at all. I can but try though.

Thinking of you and Terry, Dianna. His op date is getting closer, you must be busy busy busy!

Re: July Fantasy and Sci-Fi Art Monthly Challenge and Chat!

Hello Fantasy Forum Dwellers,

Regards to all and turkey lovers...

During my decades of art professionalism I was handed jobs, but sensible job briefs were rare. The best instructions were typed, written in Helvetica to present ideas sparsely, thus allowing an artist’s latitude to dream. (I am soooo old school!) The clients often dominated discourse and my dreams vaporised quickly upon their interference.

The situations made me author an article about toxic clients. Needless to say I lost jobs through silly commentary.

I also wrote an essay for a submission at Curtin University, which was quite factual, citing Jewish artists whom I had met personally. It earned me a dismal fail. University in Australia and I were a bad fit because I came from a different world.

However the ‘art’ decades began wonderfully well. I was young and I mixed it up with academics and artists, many of whom were Jewish… Oh, well. Never mind. Let’s go elsewhere.

I was with cigar smoking drinkers and we were discussing Chagall (Jewish) and storytelling trends, which went from the religious to the secular, yo-yoing to and fro, celebrating the absurd to return to the deeply serious: “You see, Pieter, the cow jumps over the moon that previously fell into the water where it was a big yellow round cheese for eloping lovers who swooned to the scratchy sounds made by a green fiddler who leaves footprints in the snow where the tree of life grows to tickle celestial star fields.”

Dad could stitch up a few observations and bring a twist to it. His atelier was my alma mater and I maxed out his studio, which was cheaper than cutting loose on my own. Everyone else entered the fray by visiting us in the atelier, in a rotating rapport of inebriation. Why not, eh? They had survived the war, and Indonesia afterwards!

“Art is about survival,” they said way back then.
Consequently ‘survival’ became my ‘leitmotif’.

I inherited the 20th Century and its baggage, to survive it for 45 years before joining the current one.

I also feel the old century was tangible and each of its art players touched me deeply. The new century feels phoney and unfamiliar to me. Thus I am dreaming the concepts for this month’s task as if I am in another place, the old-time villages with its gritty grunge storytelling.

Ironically I am doing the tasks on Yupo.

Here's what we did with turkeys in 1985:


Cheers,
Pieter Z
