Art Dream Inspires

My past few week and a half have been kinda draining. So today I worked on some things and I went to bed early because I was exhausted and all I dreamed about was art, isn't it funny? Not like a powerpoint slideshow of art kinda dream, but where I see the images and I just kinda go with it. Like I am inside the painting and its like a different world I am experiencing. So what images did I see? Well, I am horrible with remembering dreams, but I definitely remember seeing so much. It was like going to an awesome exhibition and being overwhelmed visually it hurts your heart because you are so completely moved. But the last place where I actually felt so dizzy with art was in The Houston Museum of Fine Art Impressionist Exhibition like 2 years ago (I spent about 1 hours in one room). I mean, I have felt great going to local galleries and museums in Dallas, Austin and in the Valley, but this dream just reminded me of those dizzy experiences. The best "dizzy" experience I had was art The Uffizi in Florence. I remember I spent about 3 hours there and there was so much to see, but when I found out I missed out on the section with the Venetian Renessaince I ran back up back this 5 flight circular staircase (apparently 15th century Italians didn't believe in elevators, hehe). You see, I had missed out on Titian and he is my absolute favorite artist, so when I got there and I spent another 2 hours there alone since my group had moved on to lunch. I didn't care, Titian over lunch would be my choice anyday. So yeah, after this dream I realized that I need to get back into my art and devote more time to the things I am passionate about. So here is hoping to better weeks ahead.

Yeah, money has been tight. I think my biggest need is an easel and some nice sturdy canvas. I have two frames which can do for now to strech canvas on but they are not the sturdiest. I have taken some pictures through out the summer but cannot even afford to process the film. I did invest in buying Adobe Creative Suite, which I got a really good deal at UT-Austin, but after I got it, I found that my operating system was no longer compatible. Now I need to get the newest version of OSX and I have been saving up for that. From that I can use Photoshop, Ilustrator and Go Live! and make better webpages, images and logos, and make some mullah on the side. I am very excited and hoping I can get my hands on OSX Panther within the next 2 weeks.

For now here is my favorite painting by Titian, "Man with a Glove". I think I may have a bit of a crush on the sitter. hahaha. Well, when it comes to Titian, to me it is all very carnal and sensual. His way of capturing light and the slightest pigments of color to make a luminous painting just gives me the tingles. You know how people call Thomas Kinkaide "Master of Light", well I would like to call Titian "Master of Skin". But what amazes me the most about the painting below is that the most arousing feature in the painting is not his young features or olive skin, but that glove. I am infatuated with that glove. sigh...
