shifting the art around
I picked "Pirate Circus" (center) up from Phoenix & Dragon yesterday. It's been on display in their learning annex since the show last fall and it will be heading to another display opportunity in NY.
"Front Runner" will be taking its place shortly.
I had mixed feelings about both these pieces even while I was still working on them. Even though they are only a few years old, I feel very distanced from both of them. The banner series I had in mind didn't go forward because..well, I just fell out of love with the project. I had envisioned majestic battle flags fluttering in the air - not these imposing but ponderous works.
As an artist, have you ever found yourself derailed by the limitations of your medium or technique?
