Summer Art “Executive VP HR Takes InfoDip“
Don’t you just love the idea of HR as the subject of wall art? Gives me a chuckle just to think about it. Here is a summer art print, “Executive VP HR Takes InfoDip,” that is among my most pointed, humorous of works to date, IMHO. These are the people who go crazy collecting data on everyone. These are the people who run the “Performance Review” exercises, among the most disingenuous of creative endeavors I know anything about– and I can speak from experience if you wish. These are the people who enforce political correctness, the antithesis of a purposeful, creative life. These are the people who track “conformity” to corporate dogma, or lack of it. These are the people who want you to believe you are a resource for the company, an invaluable one, until you’re not. Here, the Executive Vice President of HR is venturing into the waves on a hot summer day, topless of all things, carrying her laptop so as to review or gather new data while swimming– a preposterous, 21st century scene that looks so believable, doesn’t it? She has my entire dossier right there on her laptop…in the waves! < grin > I’m not worried. She’ll check in with the attorneys before distributing the final performance review evaluations— sure, right? And then everyone will rest, assured justice and fairness have been done. We have a bit of a history, together. Amen.
Below, the same image, “Executive VP HR Takes Info Dip,” hangs over a dining table in the corporate cafeteria so all can see the art during tonight’s meeting and cocktail hour. Pass the wine and crackers! An excellent occasion to celebrate an absurd commentary on data-gathering during a summer outing, one I had some fun in painting, I confess..
For owners of businesses large or small, and for those who run and manage non-profit organizations, if you would like to make available to staff and employees, even customers, any print in my Americana Collection, I will gladly add your company logo at a discreet size in the lower right hand corner and have these posters shipped to your organization. Contact me.
Question for you: Have you ever purchased a graphic print? Maybe right now, this Spring, instead of just another commercial gadget, you might consider a different kind of gift, an art print. These are all done using high-quality materials– pigments, papers and framing materials. I invite you to visit this site often, as the year unfolds. Buy a print every now and again, one that moves you. In a post-pandemic period, what better way to celebrate than…with a summer art print…perhaps even a gift to a friend or relative.
Two unusual and decidedly helpful features on my art site: The first– WALL Preview, a capability that visualizes your art selection in your specifications as seen in different settings; living room, bedroom, sitting room, conference room, these sorts of things, as referenced, above.
Secondly, the Live Augmented Reality feature that allows you to see your chosen art work on YOUR wall…in your setting. Pretty exciting stuff.
“Business Advice” for day: Mid-summer arrives in soggy fashion. Gardens have received so much water in the past week, time to drain under July sun! Honey-bees need a break, too. Pollen is soaked! A year ago, we were entering into a 8-10 week drought…this year, we’re deluged! What to do? Doesn’t the problem always seem to be the same? No matter what comes at us, we have to accept this, and then make something good out of it, effect some positive outcome…if humanly possible. While the skies pour buckets, this is an easy sentiment to express. But turning it into an effective action remains a challenge. So I am posting this blog in the spirit of patience while moving forward. I am trying to clean up some unfinished business EVEN WHILE I undertake another sketch in a new series, just now taking shape, never been done, before! I have no idea what I’ll get, but the promise-factor is high, and I am pursuing it. Exciting! This is one antidote for a soggy spell, a soggy day, and a soggy attitude…I can feel it getting better, already! What are you doing on these rainy days, post-pandemic?
