what is art? (again)

Photo from uncyclopedia

Came across the Uncyclopedia by accident, its no more (un)authoritative than most other web locations but it does appeal to me, especially the art section, if you are serious about art please scroll down a bit and be warned about the seven deadly arts.

Originally uploaded by sigh clone
just letting you know to expect a slight change in my art... everything will be from life... nothing from photos (for a while anyway)... i'm attempting to relearning some techniques... well i hope I'm learning them.... plus a lot of stuff might just be about the work (the progess of the work, or ideas, sketches etc) rather than finished works... it is a time for learning... a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; to every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven

i want my art to embrace life!
