Painting

woops

is not like other people
No I haven’t. I’ll have to make a trip. I like her shell thing on Aldeburgh beach (or is it Southwold?)
i think it's horrible myself, big pointless blob with a barbie doll sticking out of it, but don't let me put you off, and give me a shout if you do make that trip cos i live 2 minutes away

I saw a CBT therapist once and she diagnosed me within about ten minutes as "Avoidant"

She asked if I wanted to carry on with the therapy, with the understanding that I would be strongly encouraged, if not forced, to do things

I claimed that my life was in a period of transition at that time and I couldn't (such a shame) do the CBT thing at the same time

But I would do "soon"

i like to look at Bridget Riley things. My dad was very proud of a Riley print he owned. but it's a nonsense to call her a Great Painter. particularly as the person that paints them is some Lithuanian lad whose name she cant even remember (as revealed on this very forum by Edmund)

Don't think that matters one bit, that she doesn't actually paint the things herself. That is standard practice throughout the history of painting. The best Rubens paintings, in my opinion, were not painted by him.

they are not paintings actually. she is not a painter. an artist, a good one, maybe a great one, but not a painter.

is this your way of saying you are going to avoid that thread we made for you?
