NEW TO THE REPETOIRE! Ya boy Q done stepped into the abstract world! After getting over the jitters(first time ya know) I felt a deep need to delve into something a little different. OKAY! In all honesty I was in a funk after being told by the South Dallas Cultural Center that I WAS NOT READY! OH Boy! I want to do a blog expressing my disgust at the way people treat art today, which is more of a market than an expression, however I will save it for the appropriate time, right now I'm back at slugging away, hoping to connect...
I've gotten great responses from the abstracts, and it is a great way to loosen up to get myself ready for more serious projects. For a while I was under the impression that this could be a form of selling out, but I've moved away from that line of thinking. After all, I have landscapes I have yet to show my bloggy friends. I wanted to make sure I establish myself as a serious artist before going into other ventures, and with the help of great friends like my blogfriends Bella Cosa Art, Sheila of From Forensic to Fine Art, to my good friend Lady Flava, and to Shannon Grissom of Give Your Walls Some Soul and of course Tania-Maria Xavier of Coloredpeople.Net, along with other friends I feel more comfortable that people will take me seriously. If they don't it's their loss!
I have a few other surprises up my sleeve, but I can't give all of it right now! By the way, please check out the ColoredPeople.Net 2011 Calendar supporting Haiti Relief. Ya Boy Q has a couple of picks included, mixed in with excellent poetry from up and coming poets and more great pics from other artists on the ColoredPeople.Net Network! And no one from the network is getting a penny from the sales of this beautiful calendar! GET ONE TODAY!
Oh, check out the cool beanie! Love ya and Take Care! Quwwa
