I cannot let the passing of Steve Jobs go without saying my two bits.
For thirty years I did my utmost to expose my paintings to as many people as possible. I used conventional Galleries and agents. Without going into the politics of that whole game I want to devote this post to the Steve Jobs effect on my career as an artist.
By making the internet as available as he has with Apple products and challenging others such as IBM and Google to better themselves...Steve Jobs and Apple have singlehandedly opened the door for an artist like myself to put my work in front of thousands of faces each and every day. Therefore virtually sidestepping the gallery system, with some respectable exceptions.
Thank you Steve Jobs, I will miss you. But your legacy lives on.
The Artists Journey
This is my blog page and it is where I get to be the opinionated man that I really am. The views are my own.
I invite your replies and comments, on my virtual welcome mat.
This sketch above became this finished painting below
The Pine Tree Painter.
How did I become known as the Pine Tree Painter? You could say I paint a lot of Pine Trees, that would be true. I paint a lot of other things too, but Pine Trees, Spruce Trees, Birch and others seem to be a continuous string in what i do. I just like the way they stand there like a custodian of the land. or a greeter to nature. So, I continue down the path with the Pine Tree Painter name on my head, It's ok.
