Cream & Sugar


Cream & Sugar - 6 x 6 oil on panel

The final painting going up for auction this week is a little silver piece. Karen and I inherited a silver set from her parents when they were cleaning house. They thought we'd like it, and I do. I've done quite a few paintings from the set. This is a sugar bowl and creamer. I know it's corny, but I kind of liked how the two handles created a heart when placed back to back. If you'd like to bid on this painting, you can access the auction by clicking here.

The word art can describe several things: a study of creative skill, a process of using the creative skill, discount oil paintings, or the audience's experience with the creative skill. The creative arts (art as discipline) are a collection of disciplines that produce artworks (art as objects) that are compelled by a personal drive (art as activity) and convey a message, mood, or symbolism for the viewer to interpret (art as experience). Art is something that stimulates cheap vibram 5 finger shoes, emotions, beliefs, or ideas through the senses. Artworks can be explicitly made for this purpose or interpreted on the basis of images or objects. Although the application of scientific knowledge to derive a new scientific theory involves skill and results in the "creation" of something new, this represents science only and is not categorized as art.
