'So what art do you do- what's your speciality?'
'Well, it's not work that can be put into a specific category.'
'Oh, do you paint landscapes, watercolours?'
'Yes and no. What shall I say?'
Quizzical look follows
'I paint pictures in oils, portraits; I make intricate ink drawings and then there are objects - these can be rather abstract.'
'Oh, sounds interesting.....'
The baroque life of wanting and being able to create, expressing the idea of the moment in a vareity of forms and media need not sound so strange or vaccillous??
What ever takes the fancy perhaps. As with all the myriad of characters within the world of 'art', let's say 'creativity' there are so many different types of people,ways of thinking and putting hands to work styles and ways of operating have to cover the widest gamut of existence.
The world is my oyster and even here in the Limousin there are limits to the daily choices. Yes, to paint a landscape, define a portrait and then revert to delicately scribbling a dreamy drawing,all these function as part of the path to a method of making a mark.
