An Artist's Studio



A downtown street became an artist's studio on Friday afternoon. Local artist, Timothy King, used the backdrop of a Chicago St. streetscape for his next work of art. You can see his work here or here.

I like his work, but I'm not sure about his selection of subjects, which seem prosaic.

Steve Munson said...

Prosaic. I had to look that one up.

Define Prosaic from Google:
matter-of-fact: not fanciful or imaginative

Dear elginite,
Thank you for your comment and I’m glad you initially like my work. As you may know many of the greatest paintings are of prosaic subjects. Painters have preferred such subjects because of the honesty seen in them. I prefer the poetic relation between vision and nature over the reliance on fanciful subjects.

I find your art work to be very beguiling and tenderly expressive. You captured my interest and my heart in the strokes of your brush on canvas. I love your work.

Long live the landscape, pristine, or developed with sensibility and conscious effort of mind. Hats off to all who cherish it and all those love and effort to preserve it...
