Fundamental truths

I got the right side wing done today, so both sides now have their third layer of paint. The layers are building increasingly substantial body to the wings that I can exploit later when I bring detail to individual feathers. 

I’m thinking hard about fundamental truths for studio artists these days, and I think I’ll try a few of these ideas out here in the course of the next week, so please give me feedback as you see these passages appear. On my mind: Postmodern reduction has gone as far as it can, resulting in the endless repetition of the same anti-art ideas. At this time, can we establish some truths for studio artists that will offer us a solid foundation upon which to build for the future? I ask this because truth has become relative and immaterial. What are our fundamental truths?
