Original for Sale : Serious Artists Play — $ 70.00
Created in 1998 — 15 x 11 inches — watercolor, ink
Art text: Sometimes all I want to do is play— but the “grown-up” voices tell me to be serious and think about what needs to be done or how much more productive I could be if I worked on a ‘real project’ instead. But I’m learning to truly believe that playing is essential and not just escapism. Essential! — Color makes us free — Color gives life — If God’s Spirit and our spirits were a color, what color would they be? The only real answer I can imagine is a whole festival of colors playfully interacting and dancing with one another. It takes all the colors to make the world beautiful, us beautiful, God beautiful… — Just look at these fantastic colors! Where would my day go without starting it this way? Certainly not up. — Serious artists play. I must play with color to ever be serious about art. Art is taking play seriously. Serious art plays with color. Serious play = art.
Statement: Well, the text says it. Serious Artists Play is a “journal painting,” made during a time when I painted the prayer first in watercolor, then wrote the text on top of it in ink.
