About The Painter's Tongue


The Painter’s Tongue

I was talking once to a very knowledgeable person on the subject, and she told me there were two kinds of people, thinkers and doers. And, she concluded, I was unquestionably a thinker.

My name is M.T.McClanahan. I’m an artist/painter and, alas, a perpetual thinker. I am also the founder and editor of The Painter’s Tongue. The more I travel this life the
more I realize just how correct my friend was. I do seem to live in the realm of possibilities and potentialities. I find inspiration through connecting ideas across a broad range of topics.

Art is a naturally, deeply psychological endeavor, and I enjoy discussing and thinking on the meanings of things. And I know that I have many more questions than answers. The Painter’s Tongue is my “thinking out loud” if you will, a searching out for meaning.

    I do agree with the lady’s comment about you. But what good is thinking and observing without implementing those thoughts, observations and ideas with a twist? One can think the profoundest thoughts but putting them on the canvas is the hard part. Bearing your soul is the hard part. Having the courage to take a risk of looking stupid is a hard part. So are you willing to come out of the shadows of being a thinker and sharing your observations, ideas and obsessions on the canvas Marcus? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i-iJbvAhd90

  3. You’re talking about honesty Roopa and putting words out there is part of that too. Is being a thinker about staying in the shadows? Never thought about that. Maybe, possibly it is. It is safe to be in one’s head.
