I celebrated the Vernal Equinox today by spending nearly the entire day outside. The first half of this first day of spring was spent in Orangevale, California playing a round of golf at Shady Oaks Disc Golf Course. The second part of this last day of winter was spent pushing paint around on paper ein plein air.
A discarded home entertainment center serves as a make-shift art cart al fresco:
Outsider Art is a phrase used to describe self-taught artists. I didn’t go to an art school to learn how to make art, but I am an astute student.
Funk art was inspired by popular culture in the 60’s and 70’s, and uses unlikely mixtures of materials and techniques. Funk artists are not as concerned with impeccable technique, durability or form and so our works are often characterized as having a “sloppy finish”.
My Art Disc Go series have sloppy beginnings and less than sloppy finishes but in the authentic process of making my art, I am at peace and present in those moments of joyful creation.
