Tale Weaver – #281 – Artwork – June 25th

This week Michael brings to our attention a concept/notion that is all around us and to which we respond in our own individual way.

What does the term ‘artwork’ mean to you?

Some dabble in it, some make a living from it, some have created a unique form of it.

We visit art galleries and make our own minds up as to the worth of any given artwork.

I see rabbits or fox cubs, human bodies, balloons, a horn and a bird in Michael’s illustration above, but that isn’t what he asked.
Hubby and I aren’t gallery visitors, but we appreciate a nice picture, painting, photograph or ornament.
When we lived on the boat, staff of one of the shops we often visited were really friendly, two of which were in their twenties and each had the most fantastic artwork visible.
One male, one female, they weren’t related neither were they in competition with each other, but every time we saw them, another piece had been added. It was tasteful and beautiful, delicate and intricate, but each newly added design complimented the existing ones.
The skill of the artist showed,  so it came as no surprise that they used the same tattooist.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I’m not sure there is a single definition of art. I’ve heard “I don’t know how to describe it but I know it when I see it” used. To me art is a vision expressed by a person and filtered through another’s experiences to create an emotional response… Some artists deem even a negative response as successful. I’m perhaps not so confident in my art to be able to think negative responses are not the same as rejection of my vision.

    Yes Di we have different responses to art, what one might dismiss as rubbish another will be willing to spend big money on.

    Nice! I forgot about tattoos being a form of art! 😀
