I've been a little preoccupied of late with a project at the house, so things are kinda thin, Blog-wise. Been wanting to share this image for a while and now is as good a time as any.
This painting, "Yesterday's Heroes, Tomorrow's Fools" by Zsolt Bodoni really caught my eye. The work is so simple and yet so captivating, emotionally. It takes so very little to make an icon that we recognize. With just a few brush strokes of shades of grey, we're presented with this intriguing tableau that draws us right on in and our mind begins to make a story. Utterly amazing.
Sometimes we waste so much time agonizing over how to present our ideas or we fiddle with the tiniest of details to make it just right; and our struggling just ruins everything.
It really just take so very little, with some suggestive strokes, to conjure very concrete images and feelings.
