Art Resolutions is a 2015 self-imposed charge to create an artistic study each day for a year. Welcome to Day 7.
The bitter plains temperatures sapped my energy yesterday. When I returned home from work, I thought about a study and then let it go. Some hours later, I thought about my samurai. He and I were not finished. I came back to him and the idea of adding just a small touch of the figurine’s signature bittersweet red. It conjured memories of Steven Spielberg’s child’s red coat in the final scenes of his movie “Schindler’s List.” There is no deeper meaning in adding color to this study except maybe to suggest that vibrance is always lurking in the shadows and grey of everyday.
And still. The samurai and I are not done.
