    This is a scene from the classic Chinese sci fi novel "Three Body Problem". The King Trisolarius ordered the formation of a 30-Million Man Computer to start calculations on the orbit mechanics of the three suns in order to predict Stable Eras and Chaotic Eras.

    lol I'm an adult onset artist. Keeps me out of the bar!

    I do bounce a lot of ideas off her,

    "should this digital eyeball have wings?"

    "is this pyramid too pointy?"

    "should this be color coordinated or random?"

    "do these mountains look like whales to you? ok, I'll say I did it on purpose"

    most recently, "dang should I turn this glacier into an ocean? it doesn't look like a glacier"

    Haha, sorry man. That art is about 29 times better than anything I can do.


    I like the one with the mountains and the eyeball

    I like how you share your art, and am thankful.

    Keep it up, and I hope it helps you make sense of this reality.

    Thanks.

    Art Brut ... or Outsider Art.... Folk Art Even.... using the lingo legitimizes.

    I dabble my self... some Pro tips (that were passed on to me by actual pros)

    -dont be afraid to use a lot of paint.

    -Stretch all your own canvas, and do everything gallery deep.

    -Incorporate reductive techniques.

    It is funny because I keep having same feeling as doing construction. Have to think the project through and lay a foundation and really think of the sequence of events to come to a desired outcome. A lot of the time things are not looking good until the last pass and all the chaos is ironed out. yes, very cathartic and welcome distraction from sitting on iPhone...

    Does gallery deep refer to thickness of frame holding canvas or thickness of frame around finished canvas?

    I've only done one chalk piece. Not sure if it counts as 'reductive'
