Subject and Balalnce, Life and balance

Elvis the Studio Cat

We all need more balance
Subject matter changes the situation of balance in an artwork because different objects can call more (or less) attention to themselves because of their content and relationships to other objects in the painting. Red will have more weight then pink. When you are painting look at the balance of objects.

Long hours sitting at an easel can be as dangerous as computer work or couch TV.

Recent studies by James Levine, a medical researcher at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota has surprised and shocked the conventional wisdom. Specifically aimed at understanding the sources of obesity, sensors placed on the bodies of a wide range of folks with similar diets found that those who moved around more and, most important, stood a lot, tended to stay trim and fit. Levine figures we have to stop thinking of food as the source of fatness and begin to understand that it's inertia that does us in.

Having said that I am off fr a run and getting away from this computer then I will stand at my easle and paint today.
