i never want to be an artist.

Well, it's been a while.
I haven't blogged in about a week. And it's feels so much longer than that. 

I'm almost done with finals.
I just have to do a presentation on Kansinsky for English. (For more information on my English final, click here.)
And now I can say honestly that I never want to be an artist when I grow up. Never.

Painting this picture was one of the hardest things I've ever done.
For one, I picked Kandinsky because I thought he only painted pictures like this:

But he actually mainly painted pictures like this:

See the difference?
So this wasn't as easy as I thought it would be.

Now this is my painting.

It's no Picasso, but it's the best that I can do.
I had to stretch every bit of my creative abilities to paint what's up there.
Which might give you a hint of exactly how little artistic talent I have.

So yeah.
I'll be back to my frequent posting once I get out of school.
Which is June 20th.
Save the date.

Now I'm going to go read all the blogs posts I missed.
So be expecting my comments.

Yeah... I never want to be an artist either. But your painting is actually pretty interesting. That one part looks like an emo rainbow coming out of a rain cloud.

I guess I'm not going to be an art analyst either :)

Yes, I can relate.

Imagine taking a drunk salamander, dipping it in brown paint, and allowing it to run across a piece of paper. Then have a cat come along, eat the salamander, and regurgitate the remains on the paper. This is what the best of my art looks like.

The worst of my art is too horrible to describe, but I'll tell you it looks like it had something to do with an oscillating fan, a leaky pen, and a small explosion.

I think your art is neat. The blue is really beautiful.

Jodie-Ann said...

Never ever ever ever(a million more evers) will I want to be an artist. I think you did really well though :)

Leah said...

It's not bad, actually.. It is pretty artistic. :D

I've always wanted to be an artist. When I was a little, I'd play with my crayons and paints.. draw something on paper.. and on walls. haha.. but as I grow older, I've come to realize that though I love ART, it does not love me back. LOL.

Good luck with your finals!!

The Ginge said...

That's great! I think you did well, for saying you have no artistic ability! I WISH we had to do a piece of artwork for our English exam, I'm actually jealous.
You finish school before me :(
We start exams in like a week and a bit. So we finish end of June, SO VERY JEALOUS.
and good luck!

Fang said...

The stuff he mainly paints is pretty insane. Kind of like that, but always seems like a slightly-skilled 8-year-old can do it.

Maryam said...

WOW. Its pretty good and yeah, good luck! :) x

savvy said...

hiii cool blogg
i followed you
you follow me up too thanx sweety
my blog

InnocentlyGreen said...

That is a lot better than I could ever do! Haha, not bad at all :)

I think if I absolutely had to, I would have chosen some less exact style and more landscape-y or so, like some of Monet's work. My favorite painter is Aivazovski but his work is way too detailed and the colors so perfect.

Good luck with the rest of your exams.

Furree Katt said...

i think your painting was like a mix of the first two ones. that was my first impression :D
looking at it closely it seems like a spaceship heading towards the sun. :O
i like the colours! ♥

ZoeWrites said...

I think your picture is really good! I love the different colours and patterns! Very interesting. I have to agree with Furree about the spaceship heading towards the sun! Cool!

Hazel said...

I was shit at art in school. I'll always remember the day during an art lesson, me and my friend sat and read the newspapers that were covering our desks instead of actually doing anything. Best. Art. Lesson. Ever!

The teacher wasn't best pleased but because she knew we weren't continuing the subject she didn't complain. It was almost as if she was just putting up with us just like we were putting up with her class!

Good times.

ishashime said...

i looked at the first example of his work and i was like, " i could do that." but when i moved on to the second one i was all "uh, never mind." lol.
i think your painting looks nice. better than most of the stuff i churned out in art class back then. i suck at art interpretation and probably art in general so i don't really get the message (if there is one). haha.

suvaiba fatima ahmed said...

weLL after seeing you post i thank GOD as i am not an artist :P
jokes apart
i so love all your paintings and even the title of your blog

mayen said...

I am no artist. But what i saw amazes me. You did great! have fun at school and yes I will save the date. :)

~BB~ said...

I am impressed! Those look sooo good! Your circle is very similar to the one in the painting. I think you need to give yourself more credit, haha. Good luck finishing school!

Fiona said...

Rachel: I've never thought of it as an emo rainbow out of a rain cloud, ahaha. But that makes my painting sound a lot more interesting. :D

Phil and Ted: Well, if your art actually does look like regurgitated salamander art, then I guess it probably might look a little like the work Jackson Pollock did.
Which is still art.

Blog Writer: Thanks!

Jodie-Ann: I'm glad you agree with me, ahaha. And thank you. [:

Leah: I never really liked art to start with. I never really saw the point, and I would always color out of the lines. It made my teachers mad.
And I was like you, I'd draw all over my wall because it was fun. :3

The Ginge: Why thank you. (:
And I guess doing art is better than doing a bunch of written exams. Because I hate studying.
You end at the end of June? THAT'S AWFUL.
Good luck on your exams too!

Fang: It seems like that, but it's actually ridiculously hard. I wish I would have known before I started.

Maryam: Thank you, and thank you!

Savvy: I will take a look at your blog. :D

InnocentlyGreen: Ahaha, why thank you. (:
I love Monet's work and I would have done him, but I know that I could never do something that resembled his paintings, so I didn't choose him ahaha.
I also considered Picasso, but that's even farther out of my reach.

Furree Katt: Spaceship, I like it.
And thank you! [:

ZoeWrites: Thank you, I'm glad you liked it! (:

Hazel: I read the newspapers too. I especially liked it when there were people on them, because I could draw all over their faces.
And I was like you, I had this unspoken pact between my art teacher, that I could do my own thing as long as I didn't bother her, ahaha.

Ishashime: Lol, there's quite a difference between the two.
I was really good at art interpretation, because I would make up the most bogus meanings ever.
For example, if the canvas was a solid blue, I could prattle on how it's a work of art expressing the difficulties of depression.
Or something like that.

Suvaiba: Being an artist is hard...
And thank you! (:

Mayen: Thank you!

BB: I tried to model the circle after the one in the painting, so I'm glad it resembles it. :D
And thank you!

Wow, June 20? I'm sorry. Where I live, schools get out in May. My last day was May 25, but I bet you go back to school later than me.

iZaynab said...

Aha it came out really nice though.
iWould have just splattered paint of something & said some lie about the hideen meaning.
