Some More Thoughts on Where I Am and Why I Am Creating More and More Art -

When I create art it seems to me that I either with a photograph or an abstract create a world or situation that does not quite exist in the every day normal world either for very long *(when I capture an interesting moment) or at all (when I create an abstract image that does not seem to resemble anything at all of the world that we are able to see - In this way I am able to either expand my existence to encompass the moment that I have capture in a photograph or to remain in a world that I saw within my mind and actually live there and very often create entire new universes within that inner world - These moments or new worlds, are for me, extremely enjoyable to live within and when I am in them there are many new and exciting thoughts and ideas that come to me that I can and will eventually bring to my reality - It is my hope that the sharing of these images may either touch some of the viewers in the same way or simply encourage them to do the same type of creating for themselves - And while it is true that I am extremely happy and entriqued with every one of the new worlds that I have created so far - there is absolutely no way that I want to stop exploring within for new and exciting places to be - 3-24-2009PABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRTU by Walter Paul Bebirian

more on what is art and is what I create Art -

OMG - I just thought of something - what happens if someone makes a purchase from me thinking that what I have created is a real work of art - and then wow the entire knowledgeable world comes and says to that person that what they have purchased is not real art - what should I do? what should they do? why did they think that what I was showing in my collection of art was really really really really art - should I try and change their mind? should I go forward and try and create art which fits everyone else's definition of what art is? should I take a ride on a motorcycle and look for Dr House and Wilson? or can I possibly continue on as I have been doing - creating the images that I absolutely love to create and have been creating for most of my entire life? The real question is what would you do - faced with the prospect that the entire world might consider what you love to do - if the entire world came out from their corners of the world and proclaimed now that you had finally sold something - that what you had sold was not really art? or would you run right back to this particular thread right here on LinkedIn (where I originally wrote this post) and try and convince all of the people of the world (and the few people here on this thread) that what you are creating ------- well - is art?

An Interesting Idea and taking it and making it work for Myself!

just last night a very sweet and gentle young lady from Japan now living in California sent me a message about how difficult times are for her in California now and how she was asking for donations in order to keep her beautiful art pure and without commercialization - I did not hesitate about donating some money since I had seen a great deal of her work which is most astounding - and then I began to think - in all honesty - my very own situation - if I do not make any sales soon at the prices that I have set - may actually become similar to her's and with the amount of art (over 175,000 images) that I have already placed on the Internet and about another 200,000 waiting on my computer to be uploaded - perhaps I could encourage people to make a slight donation even as small as $1.00 (or a much lager amount if they like) if they feel that there has been some value in their being able to view my art for free in my online galleries (I do not make prints or canvases to hang on walls of galleries or museums which in my mind makes my work even rarer than any limited editions since only if a person really really really likes a piece after they have looked and liked it so much that they are willing to pay the prices that I ask for) and so I went ahead and placed this concept in this new digital fundraising that my friend had utilized and sent to me so that perhaps times might be only slightly better for myself as well - here is what I was able to create: http://fnd.us/c/fdFga/sh/62B00d and perhaps you might have an idea how to share this with others who might be interested in viewing my art and may perhaps enjoy the experience well enough that they might be interested in contributing to my existed to go further on with my current project - http://www.kulesearch.com/kulebuzz972/THE-MOST-POWERFUL-IDEA-ON-THE-PLANET.html thank you!
