judetullochartist is having a makeover. My goal is to create a visually exciting, thought provoking “destination” for people who are lovers or creators of art, and who like to experience the world through an “artist’s eye”.
In the next twelve months, I’ll be rethinking and re-designing my whole site, looking for ways to make it more appealing with a greater focus on art. That doesn’t mean the end of blogs about travel; it means that the travel part of my blog will be through the lens of an artist, which has always been my intention anyway.
As I observed in my last blog, the danger of being an artist who doesn’t really fit anywhere, is falling into solipsism – becoming self absorbed – creating art in a vacuum that doesn’t reach out to anyone. And I am betwixt and between, not a professional artist as I don’t earn a living from my art, but not a hobbyist either.
Nor I am part of any art scene, although I do have artist friends, and hover on the edge of groups from time to time. ‘Outsider artist’ works for me as a conceptualisation. It certainly beats ‘wanna be artist’ which sounds quite derogatory. Perhaps I’ll find my place as an artist and art lover in the virtual world. I invite you to join me, it could be a fun place to be.
