Here are some of the most liked paintings I did last year. At least according to Instagram. The whole social media circus is strange to me, because it is tempting to actually believe that these are also my ‘best paintings’. Often I post something and think ‘this is a real good painting’ and almost get no response. Other times I post something I think is mediocre and, voila, it’s a total hit! I have kind of given up analyzing the whole thing.
Happy New Year to everyone who is interested in my art and comes to my blog. Let’s focus on the real reasons we are creating! Remember why your are an artist in this fake world of ‘likes’. Remember the reason why you paint and look through all the bullshit! Put your phone down and take in the world with your senses.
Let’s all try to spread kindness, reach out to help others and make up for the lack of empathy and compassion in this world.
Great words and great paintings – inspiring on both counts. I wish you all the very best for 2018.
thank you, John. All the best to you as well! Just keep at it…paint, paint!
Thanks Frank – I’m trying I’m trying!
Frank- I love your BEST of 2017 blog. Almost as much as I love the painting I bought from you. I had it framed and it hangs where when I walk in the room, itâs the first thing I see. I look at it every day and LOVE it!Â So glad I got this painting!Â Jane
