Where’s the Time?

My lesson for this week has me researching ten artists inspired by a topic that I’d like to investigate further. As I’ve sat for, oh, four-ish hours just this evening (and it’s only day three of this lesson), I truly am inspired. But to do what? I am completely enveloped by this online world that feeds me endless knowledge. Yes, it is a wonderful tool, but I’m also not jumping off the couch to make art (that’ll come with next week’s lesson), I just keep clicking. Where is the time for both? Or, more importantly, where is the balance? Hopefully, that’s something that I’ll learn, and in the mean time, if anyone has any suggestions, I’d be happy to hear. On the note of my research however, I’ve found some artists that I really love! I am investigating art influenced by your environment, and particularly that of the South. This guy has been my absolute favorite so far: Hollis Bennett. His compositions are great, some of his little details (things I didn’t even notice until the second time I went through his portfolio) really make his photographs, and his subjects, it’s like I know them. Seriously, I think I’ve met over half of them. It’s awesome art that you should check out.

  1. Wow, Hollis’s work is amazing. I loved the rugby shots on his blog 🙂

    It is easy, SO easy, to get sucked into the internet. I’d love to be able to give you some good advice about how to balance real life along with it but sometimes I totally suck at it! usually I have to completely separate myself from the computer and my phone in order to get any work done. Or, I’ll say “Okay, I’ll work for an hour and then I can go check out that website (or whatever). Having music on distracts a little bit from the call of the internetz too. I’m glad that you’re blogging. I look forward to reading more!

  2. I can relate for certain. I am sitting here surrounded by antique style guitars the sun is shining the winds in the trees and I start to hate this little device that is stealing my beautiful day from me. I am completely torn sometimes I love a day on the beach, deep in the woods, by campfire, I enjoy real uncluttered experiences and feel myself going down this anti-zen technological path and am not happy about it.
