What makes art look primitive: is it the skill of the Artist, or the medium? A lot of work by Artist with Disabilities may look primitive, I think this has a lot to do with the mediums that are use and this makes the art look more crafty. There are some "masters" of art that have primitive looking piece, but are just as valued as the rest of their collection. Maybe this is art is it's purest form?

The more I look at Christy Brown’s work, think he may have been influenced by Cubism. This is really apparent in the painting titled Symbols. This self portrait of Brown reminds me a lot of a self portrait of Picasso in a stripped shirt.
To me this is more imminence than a a blank canvas. Although I have working digitally for about three years, I keep forgetting it is up to more to filter out. The options the do not work with as with any other medium. Of course I my favorite settings and brushes, I learned real quick how important it is to saves them as exported files. When you update software, it resets your presets and is not fun in the middle of projects.

As always the change of season brings out the art in me. Although I have been messing around with this digital stuff for a year now, I am still looking for the right "brushes" and "tools" for me, still trying to pickup the digital dialect. Is not bad working at home and not having to worry about Daisy eating something toxic. We put a nice arm chair by my desk, so she could sleep and crack her one eye open to check on me.
