This Is Not Your Grandparents Art And That is Good!. It's 2015, Let's Let Go of The Past and Embrace the Future.

On the very eve of the year 2015, (I find that number incredible even as I type it here), appreciated art needs to catch up to the future it is being created in. The past is past and in order to evolve all around must evolve and keep with current trends and energy. Just as in Rembrandts Rembrandt time, cave drawings were not seen as the holy grail, we need to stop seeing Rembrandt in the year 2015, as the holy grail. Always, always to move forward is good, to dwell in the past, not healthy. So is it the future? I always thought the year 2015 would be so when I was younger. Thinking back to my youth and imagining my home in the year 2015, what kind of pictures would I expect to see on that futuristic date? What kind of pictures would I want on my wall in 2015. I know I always want to learn and feel and experience new things. I have done the old things bring on the newKathy Mitro
 This particular painting I titled Marriage. It is the marriage of the old and the new in Art. The old a knight bridegroom, with a happy go lucky look on his face. The new an alien bride with a pious sour look on her face as she appears to sacrifice herself to this marriage. The preacher is a beautiful purple horse of some sort seen on the left hand side of the painting. If you look beside the couple you will see a candle lit for the marriage ceremony throwing light on the union. You will also see a wedding guest at the very bottom of the left hand side of the painting. Most important of all if you look carefully at the bottom right hand side of the painting, right below the couple, you will see the future child of the marriage an animal curled in sleep and waiting to be born. Look for his eye first and his shape should become apparent to you. As it is set in a futuristic setting the future is absorbing the old and by the fusion of marriage, evolving into the now.
