Being an overly serious artist isn’t a big issue for me. But some who dwell in the microscopic art world present a public image of being in near-constant angst. The smile free self-portrait (selfie) they launch into digital space for others to view often seems like they’ve been intruded upon.
I work seriously as an artist. But my serious work includes joy. Life is too short to work behind a gray fog of angst. I explore gray places in my mind by making mixed media art and writing poetry. But I need not dwell in one place. I have gradually learned to move in and out of this gray light. There are so many levels of light to explore.
I explore light and dark places in a digital poetry book titled “Not Memorized.” My art is also included in the book. It’s a free book downloaded by following this link: http://www.zeorlinart.com/MorePoetryPage.html . If you find the book is a good read please send the website link to friends and all those angsty serious artists you know out there.
Over and out!
