Intensely interesting, provokes many thoughts about the story behind the image.
Posted by timothyG on July 28, 2012
Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes! That's what I like to hear! Thanks so much, Rosy.

Hmmm you may have to write your own... although... the word 'collaboration' springs to mind.... selah... let us both 'pause and think on that' :)
Posted by timothyG on July 29, 2012
Well I wasn't actually recruiting you. I am just pleased that my painting got more of a reaction than, "It would go nice with the sofa." But I do love a good story...

lol you've hit it, that's how most art is chosen these days - decorator pieces *sigh* Oh well so long as they BUY BUY BUY
Posted by timothyG on July 30, 2012
Yeah. Until they buy, buy, buy, I'll just keep on with my "Paint and stash" routine. My works age like fine wine in the cellar. =-/

Much better than what I did. For a long time I had so little confidence I would tear 'em up and throw 'em away. Not any more!

I once had greeting cards printed from a series of drawings. I got so frustrated that I burned six cases of them! Is that how we grow, by being so critical of ourselves?
Posted by rosyjenirosehall on July 31, 2012
*sigh* I don't know Timothy. I suspect healthy self-critique is a bit different. These days even an awful drawing/painting (on paper or digital) gets held over for some months because there are often ideas there worth working on. And sometimes "yuk that's awful" has a whole new look a few months later and turns into one of our best works. Digital does mean tossing away layers instead of precious materials, but I've still trashed some of those whole and wished later I hadn't as I could have used them in a different way.
Maybe starting again and re-re-re-doing it what makes us grow :)
Posted by timothyG on August 02, 2012
Oh, I believe that whole-heartedly! And it is that "re-re-re-doing" that proves that we DO grow! In fact, most of my paintings are at least three or four versions deep! Ha! What a bargain for potential collectors =)

Thanx, Andy! "Intriguing" is a big deal/complement to me. :)

You're welcome! Noticing our shared subject matter; funny how that inspiration seems to emerge independently, isn't it? Atmospheric? Spiritual? Cultural? . . .
Posted by morraha on November 20, 2011
Good question. Are you in any way Celtic? Or grow up on a diet of folklore and mythology?
Posted by timothyG on November 20, 2011
Welsh among others. Not to strict of a diet but enough to be inspirational I guess. I almost lean towards a genetic-memories concept. -- i.e. I'm a modern
(ooops) easy-going, forgiving type guy, with an unexplained attraction/collection of medieval weaponry! I dunno.
Posted by morraha on November 21, 2011
WELSH! As am I, as well as Scot and Irish.
Posted by timothyG on November 21, 2011
Ah! I think you called it a Celtic "mash up" in your bio? --that explains!
Yes indeed. I have about...15 different clans in my bloodlines.
Clans! Do native 'Celts' keep accurate records? If so, that is way cool! The U.S. is such a melting pot that we're just "a little this, a little that" without really knowing for sure,
I have no clue! I know that at various times members of my family have plotted our family tree, but usually just along our biggest branches. I have a LOT of Welch and McEntyre blood in me. But I know for sure that my lines are pure celt on both sides. I can claim Parisian, but the reason for that is because an Irish clan settled in Paris and refused to become French.
Hah! "Non Paree'"- sounds like a battle-cry!
*giggles* We are a very warlike people.
My earliest 'Galusha' legend was an abduction from Wales brought to the New World in order to confiscate an estate left behind. I find it a little to romantic to give much credit!
Hey! We are a very romantic people too!
