Oh, the heartbreak of BWS!  This awful aesthetic affliction affects many of us. “Blank Walls Syndrome” is a very serious malady, but take heart. It can be treated and in some cases even cured! Now is the time to have a frank discussion about the causes, the symptoms and the treatments for this dreaded disorder. 

History of BWS

Prehistoric cave dwellers were the first humans to suffer from BWS. With all that time to kill inside (staying dry, warm and safe from predators), they went bonkers from boredom. Those same old blank walls, millenniem after millenniem! Gradually they invented the first known treatment for BWS, which was CAVE PAINTING.

Causes of BWS

There are many possible causes for the onset of BWS. One is moving. That new house of yours may have an extra room with four new walls to fill. Or maybe the wall spaces have different sizes and shapes than the old house. Or maybe you just threw away that tacky junk that hung on your old walls!

Time to get rid of this one:

Other situations causing BWS include having your home remodeled and/or redecorated. Or possibly you are fortunate enough to have acquired a cabin, vacation home or even a second residence. Empty-nesters sometimes have extra rooms to repurpose or redecorate. Perhaps you just don’t have enough stuff to fill a lot of empty wall space.

Symptoms of BWS

BWS sufferers present symptoms of cabin fever, habitat boredom, vision void and general dissatisfation with their low lifestyle level. Look at these deprived and depraved environments that lack the basic aesthetic requirements of those stricken with this cruel ailment. Something is sadly missing in their lives.

Plant Your Walls with Vegetation

Yes, it really is a THING. ….to have stuff growing on your walls. If you don’t mind mowing your wall, you could contact www.ambius.com for more about living walls. However it’s more expensive than buying a painting. And speaking of paintings, this is my newest work, GRIDDY CITY  30″x30″  Acrylic on Canvas. (on SALE until 9/30/17 for $600 plus FREE SHIPPING in Continental U.S. – email me)

In the next post, I’ll TRY to get serious about how to fill your walls with ART and why that’s a good thing to do.

with Scott Steelman

Ideas and images are always bubbling up inside me. Some creative force contantly compels me to experiment and produce works of ART. Consequently I make many things: pictures, sounds, paintings, music, writings, jokes, hay, whatever. What is most exciting is discovering new ways to combine all these things. Now with digital technology, it’s really fun to bring static ART to life. A picture is worth a thousand words and a moving image is worth a thousand pictures. Here is my painting, BaZaarO brought to life with music.

The Beatles provide great resource material for jazz interpretations. Here’s my arrangment of “Blackbird”.
