The Outcast #63

The Outcast
#63/100

Finished another clock last week and have had it up on the wall checking it out. I decided to give it some time before stamping it with my seal of approval. This clock I must admit has grown on me in a big way. I wasn't 100% sure about it at first ~ I hesitated because it has a different feel than most of my clocks and I needed to really be with it. I've been with it and I'm ready for #64! The best part about this piece is having is above a chair, when you look up at it the dimensionality sucks you in. It feels very old and yet purposeful.

i am reminded of my trig class in high school with the protractorish protrusion outside of the "box" -- eep -- but i STILL like it! :)

I'm still working on my new website and it is still a challenge for me every single time I try to do ANYTHING.  I knew this would be a daunting task and I have not been proven wrong even 6 months later.  Forget about actually getting traffic from random seo searches, that is in the far off/unseen horizon as far as I'm concerned.  

I knew I needed to do this years ago but couldnt release even one tooth from the etsy teat until the cup runneth dry which it has for a year or more.  In fact, a few of you may remember and have even purchased art from my very first microsoft frontpage made paulaart site.  I love the wayback machine....you can see some pages of one of the last renditions of it before I went full on with etsy.   How I savanted THAT is something I'd pay money for to do again!  I had no clue what I was doing and yet managed to get sales from complete strangers for gods sake.  And yet today, with all the knowledge/experience I purportedly have (and all the bells and w…

Friday New Art Finds.  ha.  I'm posting it early because my blog needs something on it other than ME.   I present to you Louis Pons.  Born in Marseilles, France in 1927 and apparently still going strong.  I have little to no information on this artist, he appears to be elusive on the net.  I recently watched a strange little movie called 'The Gleaners and I' by Agnus Varda.  She had a blip on him and I set to searching for images or information online only to come up with a small wikipedia blip and a few sites containing his work.
No matter, it's enough just to see his work.  This site if you translate it, appears to have the most information of any:
Primary studies at Marseilles, school of the Carthusian monks.
School of the Trades, Endoume, Marseilles. He learns the trade from fitter bu…
