A wonderful article on fellow painters.

I was pleasantly surprised when I woke up two days ago and found this in my home page feed of blogs that I actively read and follow. A very well respected and admired curator Carl Belz decided to write a nice piece on a few fellow painters, and included myself in the writing. Put a big smile on my face that still hasn't went away. I am very thankful to Mr. Belz for his kindness in writing about my work and the work of fellow painters.


Thanks for reading.

Campaign Donations....it's still on.

I wanted to take a moment to say Thanks to all those wonderful insightful people who donated to the Kickstarter Campaign. Unfortunately it didn't get all the donations it needed to become a successful campaign. Even after the campaign ended, people are still sending in funds via paypal to help get the next phase of the film made. Granted, what amount you decide to donate will be responded to with the specific pledge it was accompanied with. So if you still give $25 you'll have the digital download in HD of the full film. For $45 you'll have the DVD and digital download. And onward. If you need to check out what the levels were. Please feel free here.

Since so many of you have been gracious enough to help like this, I do have special gifts I wish you to have, but i'll let them be a gift and not tell you about them. ;-)

Just click the box to be taken to the Paypal site. You don't have to sign up for their service to use it.

It will ask you what email to send the funds to. Put in jeffrey@jeffreycollins.us and it will be good.













Thank you all for the support. Jeffrey

Quote of the Day 03-02-2012

To begin the year. I'll begin with a quote from one of my absolute favorite painters and good friend Joseph Marioni. This is from a paper he wrote in 1992 called "Socrates and the Alligator".

You can download a set of papers I have digitized here... http://jeffreycollins.us/Marioni_Papers.zip

"It has always struck me as quite curious that the principles of art, in the classical tradition, were not formulated by artists but rather by philosophers."

He's speaking about how we are still using terms brought forth not be artists, but by philosophers. People who really didn't know much about art, and even less about painting.

Cheers to all Painters out there. Destined to fight the fight against old theoretical practices in art.
