MicroVisions

.
I was just informed that the MicroVisions auction has gone live so I thought I'd post the link for you.
Every Year the Society of Illustrators selects 12 artists to do a "micro" 5"x7" painting to be exhibited and auctioned for their student scholarship fund. It's been a real thrill to be in the company of participating luminaries: Scott Bakal, Julie Bell, Scott Brundage, Brian Despain, Rebecca Guay, Scott Gustafson, John Picacio, Dan Dos Santos, Peter de Seve, Chris Rahn and Terryl Whitlatch.

It was tough to paint so small! Sure, I do tons of tiny roughs but nothing that's intended to be a "finished" painting. Nevertheless I'm happy with the outcome and have posted it here for you to take a look at. If you'd like to place a bid you can do so here, it goes to a good cause.

Hey Nathan, thanks for stopping by. Hope all is well with you! I just moved back to Los Angeles and looking forward to taking your classes again. Will you be teaching at Kevin Chen's school? Are you still at the LAAFIGARTAcademy??

Art is a term that describes a diverse range of human activities and the products of those activities, but here refers to the visual arts, which cover the creation of images or objects in fields including oil painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, and other visual media. Architecture is often incuded as one of the visual arts, though like the decorative arts, it creates objects where practical considerations of use are essential in a way that they are usually not for painting for example. Music, theatre, film, dance, and other performing arts, as well as vibram five finger shoes, and other media such as interactive media are included in a broader definition of art or the arts. Until the 17th century, art referred to any skill or mastery and was not differentiated from crafts or sciences, but in modern usage the fine arts, where aesthetic considerations are paramount, are distinguished from acquired skills in general, and the decorative or applied arts.
