Thanks a lot Nufocus. We apparently see and value the emotion in a work to the same degree, along with Arty I think.I love it. So much emotion. Which is just my kind of work.
Forgive me Arty.... And that detail, Trier, is an even greater depiction of the emotion that’s packed in there.
Well said Arty !!I too get stuck in holding back context. It's hard, but sometimes people want to know. Sometimes you have to allow the art to speak for itself, but it's okay to give context when you are getting critique, I feel. I think if it's hanging in a gallery somewhere, then maybe it should just be let alone and we should let viewers decide, but it's okay to talk about our inspiration here. My .02.
That is EXACTLY what I want to do here on Creative Spark; except for the price part which doesn't exist because they are all Priceless! LOLPersonally, I do include a little "note" on each piece on my website, but you'd have to click on it for the window to pop up in order to read it. It's just a quick tidbit about the piece from my perspective. Sometimes it's what the piece meant to me, why I did it, where I did it, or how I did it, but it's usually not too much information. Just a little something. People don't have to click on it at all, just like they don't have to click on the link to reveal the price either.
