I’m constantly updating my website and the artwork that I have available for collection. However, what is constantly updated almost on a daily basis is my Instagram @shiloratner. It’s fun to share in-progress paintings and thoughts on artworks on that platform. However, there are quite a few places to collect original artwork.
I am about to embark on a 21 day abstract painting project. I’m already in the habit of painting daily but I am going to see what I can produce on 21, 5 x 5″ panels during this time frame. These little abstract paintings will be posted daily on my Instagram feed and then be available on my new online shop.
Did you know that the common myth that it takes 21 days to form a new habit was from a misquoted saying by Maxwell Maltz? He actually said “a minimum of about 21 days” and the saying got changed to “It takes 21 days to form a new habit”.
I absolutely love the newly improved SF MOMA. It’s spacious and there is so much fabulous modern art to look at all in one location. Here a few snapshots of works that inspired me during my last visit (Joan Mitchell, Richard Diebenkorn, Hung Liu, Nathan Oliveira, and Njideka Akunyili Crosby). If you are San Francisco this museum should be on the top of your list
