When I grow up, I want to be Keith LoBue

Keith LoBue‘s work is amazing.

I was trying to find him online (couldn’t recall his name) for about two weeks.  I asked at AJ2 (Yahoo Group) and had a reply in about 30 seconds.  (Thank you, Pamela!)

If you haven’t looked at Keith’s work lately, go see it now.  (Imperative.)  You’ll need a tissue nearby, because you’re likely to salivate all over your keyboard and monitor.  His work is that kind of gorgeous!

When I get distracted and need focus, artists like Keith LoBue are a form of grounding for me.  I feel an innate connection with what he’s doing, between his attraction to found objects and his innate sense of visual balance and intrigue.

I want to make more time for art shrines that include found items.  Well, I want to make more time for art shrines, period.

I also need to make more time to drink in the artwork of others… past artists and contemporary ones, particularly people whose materials and/or techniques are just a little different from mine.

It’s about the energy, and how well I can identify with it.

Frivolous links, which I’ll probably add  to my daily Tweets over the next few weeks:

Way Out Junk – Truly cheesy music, especially from the 1950s and 60s.  Seriously, who can resist “Der Wienerschnitzel Presents – Up-Up and Away in My Beautiful Balloon”?

If you’re looking for similar holiday music, don’t miss Hi-Fi Holiday.  It’ll remind you of b&w TV, and Perry Como music specials.

Music You (Possibly) Won’t Hear Anyplace Else – Even older music, often in the public domain… if you have a use for that sort of thing.

Speaking of old stuff: Testing reveals that I’m not actually “older than dirt.”  I’ll sleep better tonight with that weight off my mind! *chortle*

On that note, I’m closing this, to look at Keith LoBue’s art again, and get inspired.

    Don’t forget to get inspired by Susan Lenart Kazmer.
    She’s truly a pioneer and thinks outside the box.
    Go see some really wild stuff.
