I step out onto the dust
feel it touch my sins.
I know its time to move forward.
I thrive in the mystery of what can be.
I fold up all the symptoms of regret.
I see its torment.
I speak wisely to myself
I know myself too well.
I will stand before my paintings
brush in hand
ready for the strokes
I touch another dimension
I hold its mystery.
I sing to the music
hear its intrusion
it soaks up discontent.
I wipe my brow
I take cotton
wipe the blood away.

I struggle unwisely at times.
No way to move past corners.
I wake up to what could be
host it all with coffee.
I sit and plan my stride.
I reach inside my pocket
full of lint.
Stop all the disbelief
and contend with unpainted canvases.
they decide my fate if I let them.
I coat myself with vinegar and soap
I will wash away these nightmares
Oh and yet no
toss and turn
who will I be today?

Blankets cover up potential
blinded by the knowledge
of well meant affirmations.
Clearly I am allowed
to come into a vision.
Yes, I sigh
despite my back and forth
All is well.
That is what I choose for this moment
that is all I need to see.
Paint on I tell myself.
Dream and make glitter out of nonsense.
Retreat to where I know I am magic.
Clay is often used to make clay art of all types. Although not necessarily functional, clay art can come in many sizes and shapes. The art can also be simultaneously decorative and functional. For example, a colorfully painted pitcher kept on an open shelf might also be taken down to serve lemonade at the next family picnic.
Although we see it everywhere, many people overlook clay art plates hung in offices and homes. Some unique pieces can be carved, painted and fired then ultimately hung on the wall like one might do with a fine art print. It is even possible to frame clay art. One can create designs that are modern or reminiscent of prehistoric times. If one does not have the artistic touch to create their own, this type of art can be purchased at stores and galleries throughout the world. Prices will vary depending on the artist and nature of the work. One clay wall art piece might sell for thousands of dollars at a fine gallery or you might find decorative clay art at your local discount store for fewer than twenty dollars. The bottom line is individual taste. Clay art varies so widely that there is something for everyone.

Gothic Art, a Medieval Art Movement, emerged when Europe was going through a radical transition from the 'Dark Ages' to the 'Middle Ages.' The continent was innovating new style and culture with each passing era. Gothic Art spanned from 1120 AD to 1515 AD. Owing to its prolific yet unique style through several years, Gothic Art & Architecture is distinguished into three ages, namely Early, High, and Late Gothic.
The transition of Gothic Art occurred in England & France (around 1200), in Germany (around 1220), and in Italy (around 1300). In this period, sculpture, frescos, panel paintings, manuscript illumination, and stained glass painting were the key art forms, carrying both Christian as well as secular essence. Frescos were the chief medium for portraying religious sentiments, especially in Southern Europe. Some of the frescos however, also depicted the plutocratic society, like the kings and princes. Metalwork, tapestries, and embroidered vestments were other platform for religious depiction. Stained Glass was more popular in Northern Europe. Early Gothic Art set foot in France in around 1120-50 AD with Gothic Architecture and continued up to 1200 AD.
During the Early Gothic Period, Christianity was evolving, thereby embarking upon a new chapter in history. This change was evident in Early Gothic Art through huge, outstanding Gothic Cathedrals, constructed all across Europe, with 1140 being the outset of Early Gothic Architecture and Sculpture on the walls of the "Basilica of St. Denis," Paris. The "Chartres Cathedral" of Paris followed next in 1145. The other most famous cathedrals among these were the ones across Northern France in the cities of "Reims," and "Amiens." Early Gothic Architecture followed the style of light & tall buildings, pointed arch, flying buttress, and glazed windows.
The portrayal of religious stories occupied prime place in Gothic Art. The 'Typological' sculptures & paintings in cathedrals portrayed the transformation in Christianity as the fables of the "Old and the New Testament." The paintings also revolutionized from the iconic and boorish Romanesque & Byzantine styles towards more of 'Naturalism.' The depiction of Virgin Mary in the cathedrals not as an idyllic figure, but as a loving and caring mother such as in the "Life of the Virgin," concretely foretell the 'Naturalist' tilt.
Early Gothic Paintings were quite expressive in the 'natural' and the 'animated' parlance. Kings, such as Alexander the Great, King David, and Charlemagne, were the most loved subjects. Early Gothic Sculpture carried Roman and Greek essence vis-à-vis dressing, pose and facial expression. The sculptures inherited the Roman spatial arrangement, well in consonance with 'Naturalism.' The sculptures on the "Western (Royal) Portal," of Chartres Cathedral are a perfect example of Early Gothic Sculpture.
After the period of 200 years, Gothic Art graduated to Renaissance in Europe, thereby ending Gothic Art, between the timeline of Italian and Northern Renaissance. Many Renaissance artists, like Robert Campin and Jan van Eyck, however, still carried the influence of Gothic Art. Their oil paintings depicted 'Naturalism' and 'Realism' coupled with 'Symbolism.' Therefore, Gothic Art was a pioneer of change and innovation, as it emancipated itself from the iconic Byzantine Art and adopted a natural style. Many art historians and art lovers continue to research Early Gothic Art & Architecture, as they learn its innovation and creativity.
If you go into any major music store all you see hanging on the walls is the same old guitars. They all have that generic look, the same finish they have had for over 50 years, and they all come in the same boring stock colors. If there is any art on the guitars, it is from the factory, and it is boring looking.
Playing music for moss players is a way to express themselves, and the guitar is an extension of the player. It is hard to walk into any guitar store and find a guitar that best fits their image. Some player's will put stickers on their guitars, or they will try and do some of there own artwork with supplies they find around the house, like spray paint. Most of the time they come out not looking very good.
There was an article back in the late 80′s featuring Eddie Van Halen and his electric guitar that he spray painted with Schwinn bicycle paint. No one had ever seen that before, and it started to become the new standard in electric guitars. Everyone started to customize their guitars to look tricked out with different designs, and it started a revolution.
Because custom painted guitars have become so popular over the years there have been some people that have made a business, or hobby custom painting, and there are a few that turn guitars into pieces of artwork. They specialize in painting an refinishing, including custom paint jobs, airbrushing, and OEM finishes.
There are a few really good artist at there that do custom paint jobs for you, and if you want to have some art put on your guitar, I recommend doing some research online, you will find some great websites that you can look at to see the type of work they do.
So if you are a guitar player and you are tired of your guitar looking plain, and boring and you would like it to look all tricked out, then I recommend getting some art put on your guitar. It is a great way to express yourself and to help stand out when on stage.
A couple of instant coffee granules miss the cup as they often do first thing in the morning. With slow sleepy swipes, I mop them up while I wait for the kettle to boil. If I've managed to convey the right number of coffee granules from the coffee jar to my mug, and added precisely the right amount of sugar, milk and hot water, then it will be a good cup of coffee. But if I don't get ratio exactly right, it's yuck, which goes to show that there's an art to making a decent cup of java. Or is there? An art to making coffee, I mean.
The question of what constitutes "Art" with a capital T has been around for a long time. People pretty much agree that making a good cup of coffee is not an art but there is still a lot of dissent about certain modes of expression like writing, movie making and fashion. There is the idea that fashion cannot be an art because it evolved from sewing and tailoring which is a craft even though tailoring has been referred to as "architecture" and the draping of fabric across the body as being "sculptural". Many designers make references to art and artistic theories and concepts in their work yet are nevertheless relegated to the ranks of the frivolous where haute couture is viewed as the fetish of the financially well-to-do. And once haute couture and runway collections have been watered down for consumption by the general public then they are seen as nothing more than financial commodities and functional apparel in the marketplace.
Another reason why fashion is not considered to be art is because, as with film making, a number of people performing different functions take part in the creation of a garment, such as the designer, fabric producer, pattern cutter and seamstress to name but a few. Because designers often don't work alone to produce a garment, they don't fit with the traditional view of the artist as a solitary genius and are therefore not considered artists even though their vision of what the garment will look like is their own.
In short, there is no clear-cut answer as to whether fashion is Art or not because there are so many ways to interpret and use an individual garment. It can be seen as protection from the elements, an expression of belonging to a particular socio-cultural group, as a personal form of expression when it is worn, or in its purest sense, as the embodiment of the vision of its creator, the designer. Because fashion is so fluid and open to interpretation, it fits in with the theories of many disciplines and forms of expression, of which Art is only one.
