Art is –

Posted on Updated on

Art is …

sometimes a statement, an expression, a comment …

it can be grand and glorious or small, distressed, torn …

it can seem quite ordinary but because it has been placed in ‘a frame’ it has special meaning …

art is 2

art is 4

… sometimes the word itself is just a little too much because of all the baggage that can go with it, but then you find something, hear something and the ordinary, the odd moment suddenly has new and added meaning and depth …

We have gone beyond wild picnics and summer jaunts. There is something of a new beginning taking place, work or study comes to the fore and personally I have the urge to slip into particular bars, run through certain sorts of music and spend evenings in a way that is …
