Tell us about your art, your current or most recent project, or the project you are dying to work on. What's your creative process,
the problems you encounter, your style, a favorite character you've created, etc.?
Does writing music count?

I have hit a creative swell over the last 2 years, I have written and recorded a lot of songs.

I have been doing this for about 7 or 8 years.

I record and catalog the stuff, so that I can see the progress, and for the idea of making a collective piece.

Over a year ago, I did two instrumental pieces, each 90 minutes. That's friggin 3 hours of music. I think I did it in about 4 months.
I am not saying it's all great, or even good, but some of it is.
I try to be objective. Some of it is redundant, but I am only recording for myself, so who cares?

I mean the whole idea to record and keep it is to see the progression. I remain very passionate about it. I write music as therapy, among other things, including being a hobby.

Plus I have always just loved music, since I was a small child.
Bought a guitar and recorded for about 2 or 3 years before I ever started trying. When I started I thought it was cool to just play with sounds, now I write songs with chords and all that stuff.

And for the record, I am working on, near completing what I think is my best work ever. I completed it, in part and for the first time ever have gone back to try and improve some stuff.

I am usually in the business of writing a song, recording it, and moving on to the next phase. This time, just trying to iron out some ideas.

All in all, I have 200+ songs? If I wanted to go back and refine the best stuff, i wouldn't even know where to begin. But it sure is FUN to add to it!

I did a U2 recording too, got about 25 U2 songs done, some of them very cool, some kinda crap.

Of course music counts.

My friend the clinical nutritionist believes it can be treated nutritionally. Then again, he believes everything can be treated nutritonally, lol.

I have a bit of ADD myself. In fact, I think several of my friends do as well and it's sorta funny at this point. One of them changes the subject so often that I've developed a theme song for him that I burst into everytime Mr. ADD appears. Yes, we crack ourselves up.

I have all kinds of creative issues. But I play a little guitar, but not much these days, and am trying to garden as an outlet. I get excited each morning when I go outside to peek at my flower bed.

I'm working on a live U2 compilation. How is it art? I'm remixing most of the songs, and even composing some extra synths to go along with the music. The craziest part of it all is percussion remix. I'm livening Larry up with some crazy drum tech. I just finished part of my "Elevation" remix, which I use five different versions of the song - 2 studio/3 live performances, as well as my own synth to open it up and fill in the break. It will take a while to complete - and a lot of free time. I'll brag about it nonstop when it's finished.

We'll have to hear it when you're done Macfist. Look at all the talents we didn't know each other had. My respect grows minute by minute.

You all make me feel like a hopeless lump; all these great paintings, photos...wow!

I do quilting, which isn't really art, I don't think, and play around with some collages and junk with my little graphics program. I gave up on writing years ago, when I realized that I have no worthwhile talent with words. I wrote exactly one thing that was worth the paper it was printed on, and it was only three lines.... Well, maybe more than one, but I haven't looked at them in years....

Mrs. Springsteen, doesn't matter what anyone else thinks; doesn't matter if you don't know anything about photography; just matters whether you like doing it. I like you photos.

What makes you think quilting isn't art, echo? We have a big fair around here in September and one of the reasons I go is to look at the quilting. I am in awe of quilting. So show us your quilts and your graphics. We all diminish our art. Besides, I've read your posts. Where do you get this no talent with words idea?
Art is about how we view the world and look at all the unique views. Sorry. I'm getting a little rapturous here.

Well, I am Irish (by descent, anyway), so I'm bound to be able to sling a little bull

Unfortunately, I can't show you my quilts, as I am not scanner equipped at the moment. Maybe sometime I'll post some of my graphics (when I can decide which one I'm least embarrassed by).

The reason I find it hard to think of quilting as art is that I've been doing it all my life. My mother quilted, to bring in extra money, and put warm covers on our beds; she taught us all to sew. It's just something I do, quilts are pretty blankets, you can hang them on the wall if you like, but they should be used....and when you've seen a quilt that's been used for ten years, and it's falling apart, shedding threads, batting coming out, 'art' is not the word you think of.

Shit. I love usable art. Adds an extra dimension to it, I think.
Purposeful art.
