The Importance of Repetition as an Artist
The core of Scott Christensen’s teaching surrounding artistic growth starts with repetition, and there is no compromising the commitment. “You have to learn to think artistically and aesthetically in how you see,” he says. “You need to train your eye to see what is pleasing to you, and what is not. What might seem a strong harmony, is actually just a vague, close idea of how a true harmony might play.” How will you apply the advice of this hard working landscape painter?

Noah David Exhibit at The Underground Museum
The late Noah Davis's themes in art bounce between depictions of everyday life, and his work in magical realism. The current exhibit at LA's Underground Museum helps us to understand his triumphs at the canvas as well as his legacy in community. Davis’s career was brief but expansive, his compositions modest in scale, yet so relatable in feeling and mood. His palette aided in the delivery of his messages, a certain amount of melancholy found in his selection of blues, purples and greens.
