While watching it rain yesterday I thought of a picture that I made not too long ago. I’ll admit this photograph took a little patience. It’s not easy capturing the splash with one hand while dropping water from a syringe with the other. It is amazing how one drop of water in a cup can create such awesome art. I have this photograph framed and mounted on the wall at my desk. It also reminds me how a drop of water will cause a ripple to cross a lake. The power of water is truly marvelous.share:
There are different octaves making up the eighty-eight keys on a piano, but still only twelve notes. I thought about this as I looked at the picture I took of my hands and the piano keys. I realize that I have something in coming with the great composers throughout history, twelve notes. I can play those twelve simple notes, not in the order or with the same timing of Mozart, Beethoven, or Rachmaninoff. But with enough practice, I can play at least something as good as they did, scales, because I have the basics notes. Just one of that thing that popped into my head as a self-proclaimed Artologist.share:
Artology is the study of art, not just one type of art like painting or drawing, but art of every kind. Art is express in so many ways that I just cannot get enough of it. I like learning about all artistic avenues. My personal artistic outlets are photography, drawing, painting, dancing, playing bass guitar and now this blog. I learn something new everyday about my creative outlets, and hope to continue to learn new tips. I think God for my talents daily and ask for his help in not letting me take them for granted. God is the ultimate Artist, I only ask for the ability to see the beauty in all that he has created and possibly share them with others.
