the commissioned lightning rod

sometimes i just never learn .. i have officially been through the 'z to a' effect in producing work for others .. it's a very, very difficult job .. of anything i have ever had to do in regards to completing a job, getting a fully satisfied art customer is extremely hard .. recently, i went through a huge series of hallways with a customer after they 'loved' the painting i delieverd .. so, again, i come full circle to the commissioned artwork thing and have decided that it just isn't my thing .. if it's a sure fire, no worries or micro managing, i can do it .. but, it's just not my fancy .. the key to the commissioned artwork for the customer is to realize that you have to give it time to settle into your room and mind, along with never losing sight of the original notion of wanting a particular artist's work .. it really is that simple when you stop and think about it .. good night, joe d.

the 9/11 artbox

been watching a live feed from CNN of the actual day of 9/11 and it's very interesting .. i was in venice, italy when the attacks happened and got no real time american feed .. so, i was being a bit reflective on what 9/11 did for my artwork and i found that i really haven't painted anything directly related to it .. maybe some offshoots, bits of subconscious stuff .. after five years it all seems surreal as i watch it unfold again .. here's a painting that may have been loosely related .. cheers, joe d.
