Bewteen winter and summer of 2013, I shifted to a new landscape, concentrating on small works of art, made at my coffee table, combining text and image, as you will see on my experimental blog: asmallfineartsketchbook.blogspot.com

And here is an example of my sketchbook-sized art you may see there. I found a drawing by RenĂ© Descartes from 1644, where he drew magnetism and gravity as a lettered diagram (the earth is the piece I have colored blue).  It is filled with the excitement of discovery … his … and so I started thinking about another favorite theme of mine, audience: who would he have shown this to? How would he have explained it? And then I pulled in Motherwell’s idea of the colors black and white as protagonists, fighting and succumbing to magnetism:

But now, I am revising this older blog post, because I am coming back to "Artist in an A-Frame." Stay tuned!

  1. nice to see the combination of text, the texture and the paint ! magnetism seems to be a very cool topic for painting... are you planing to create more artwork like this ?

  2. Thank you, Bernie! Yes, that's what I work on now... stop in at the portfolio... I am working now in a 19th-century book, collaging and painting, and also on the new blog. Take care!
