The latest concept is to try to marry my rendering skills, and my abstract sensibilities into a concept as to how we really don’t look at everything, and when we do, it is not for very long. An eighties concept called this cognitive overload. We are well beyond that. Our brains see it, and file it, but without all of the details. (And, in the meantime, someone is arguing with their “significant other”/mother/child on their cell phone, and you just remembered that deal on Groupon, that just expired)

It’s not the happy world of Monet and Matisse, where busy meant a slight blur. This is my depiction of daily reality.

About artinsmallplaces

I am Daryl-Ann Hurst, (also using Daryl-Ann Dartt Hurst), an artist and writer, who is also interested in antiques, travel and the outdoors. I am hoping to use this blog to meld all of the interests. I was born and raised in California, have a BA in art, have been published in the New England Antiques Journal and have photography on the Gulf of Maine's website. I have shown paintings and prints nationally since 1978.
