Everyone has interests, hobbies, talents, and creative ideas. It's great sharing - getting feedback and giving feedback when asked. Years ago, when I attended the Cleveland Institute of Art, we became a family with the Cleveland Institute of Music students. It was great - artists and musicians coming together and sharing thoughts.
I really miss those days of listening to others speaking about new innovations, sharing their thoughts and opinions. Sometimes, I think how sad it is that society has closed up a lot of minds - fear of sharing ideas and having open discussion.
When graphic art (fine art) totally disappears, humanities will be gone. Yes, we do have the technology of using computer software to create images. It's great having this tool - but, it's only a tool to enhance Commercial Art.
I hope the days of Picasso and other creative artists (using paint brushes and canvases) never stops or goes away.
Unfortunately, small art galleries are disappearing. Cities are attempting to save local artists by allowing us to hang our paintings in City Halls.
I am an artist. My first husband was a musician. Soul-wise, it was a beautiful relationship of communication, listening, and understanding each other. Artists and musicians are rare people (yet, we seem to be many). Creativity is rare (yet, many have the abilities).

Akron Zoo - Journey to the Reef Coming
This black bear lives at the Cleveland Zoo -
he gets hand fed Sea Critters!!!
Next month, I hope to be visiting the Akron Zoo and see Journey to the reef. I'm looking forward to this visit. I'm between acrylics, water colors, and markers. Also, working on different photo paintings of many different sights and things (such as The Bear, which I'll be posting - BECAUSE BEARS EAT SEA CRITTERS!!!!!). I think, I need to apply myself more to my Sea Critter Blog - get more into the markers. I have some terrific photos of many deep water sea critters!!!
