Click the “gif” artwork …
The image is a visual response to an engaging post:
The Animated GIF: The Antithesis of Mindfulness
Personally, I love rich visual imagery … It’s the way I think and communicate.
For me, the best Art has ambiguity. I like having the time and silence to appreciate and question.
But now, EVERYDAY feels like an animated gif. The average person is exposed to 3,500 advertising messages a day. We devour images, resources and ideas.
And along the way, maybe we’re debasing and dehumanizing ourselves?
Jade and I draw and think about our beautiful family time yesterday …
A spectacular Metro Vancouver trail during a rare sunny break in November.
I scribbled the crayons on newsprint and Jade splashed the colour.
Swirling, vibrant light and colours (Sun detail above).
Thinking about the sun … can’t wait to see you again.
Bright, playful splashes of colour. A painting detail from Jade.
An festive drawing from last year … Jade turns 3 soon !!!
Swirly colors, lines and smiles.
