Hmmmmm....A question that comes up, I like to hear peoples thoughts on what do we see as art? The past thread said a lot of peoples thoughts, but are we really close?? Barre was correlating highest price?? Van Gogh never made a dime, but yet he's like the top dog in his lifetime now that time has passed. Joe said , feather count?? How they lay??? Not me!, But Joe's pieces are consistently the most "Art-like" of any on this board. Buzzsawz, are original, way out there in scope, but he represents himself as a folk artist, and I believe it true. Some pieces he does are representative, and he uses his instincts to fill in what he doesn't know, and effectively.Most of us are commercial artists/artisans, making whatever we can turn a buck at. An awful lot of us try to copy wildlife( because people want/buy it), and swear up and down they are the best at it. (Some Like RD make excuses why theirs isn't anatomically correct.) Others will change their design"Habits" when they find out, I bet RD won't do this again( with his primaries on birds.) Style, and form are really important here. Joe Rego has great style and his pieces are easily recognizable. Angie Polglaze too. Dave Conklin does works that when I see them, I see Dave's hand. Copying nature is copying. Ken Tynan copy's a lot,( ie: the hulk, Lynn Randall bears, etc) I don't know if he has moved at all into anything original, I don't see enough of his pieces to know.I am a commercial artist for the most part. Who else among us do you see as an "Artist" knowing what you know, and why do you think this??

art being produced by most is considered mastery of a craft the skills have been developed to where one can do an eagle,owl ,bear etc and make it look just like one . heres a jewell from american pickers they look for weird!!! unique!!!! different!!! becuase collectors want what nobody else has , why should it be any different for us are all your clothes the same i hope not people like variety the biggest disservice to this art form is copying and producing things that look like they came out of a replicator. the true artists are the begginners after 6 months there crafters like the rest of us

parker you are a joke. You don't even qualify to go to Ridgeway. Tynan is as original as they come. I own a couple of his pieces ,they are fantastic. You have not seen any of my work for years. I don't post pictures normally, so you would have had to be at one of our events. If you had been to one of our events in the past five years you would not be playing with me. Post your best, mouth, I can't wait to tear it to pieces using your method of critique. You are way out of your class, guess which way. Put up or shut up!

I'm in the midst of doing a business start-up in plastics manufacturing, ain't got time for fun lately. If I didn't have a life, I could go on vacation like you all the time.

Haahaaheeeheeeheewooooh! A start up on plastics plastics mfg heeehaaaahohohowooo. Wearing a condom to satisfy yourself this morning is not manufacturing it just more abuse, thank God you are only subjecting yourself to it. You would have a life too if you would just go to work and stop freeloading off anyone you can. Nobody owes you a living.

I do like the fact that you do title all of your work appropriately.....TP = toilet paper that way the paper mill lill know which grinder to run it through.

Damn, posted at 4:20. Has it got so bad that you can't sleep through the night without a drink?

You spend most of your time on the computer. It would take 2 minutes to post your pics. Post them or cowardly decline. If you decline you should have to post a public apology to all that you abuse. But we all know that you don't have the ability to take responsibility for your actions, so we will just have to take your cowardly decline as an apology.
