Notes to Myself

The artist's job is to discover and cultivate an authentic relationship between self and nature (nature = "everything else").

Art INVENTS: spontaneity, discovery, creation.

Gustav Klimt, The Park

You can’t control what people think about your work, so stop trying to.

JMW Turner, Cilgerran Castle, Pembrokeshire

Q: "Are you a musician or do you just play the piano?" 

A: All you can do is play the piano until the day comes when, as you're watching your hands in motion, you look up and say, "Wow, I can really play the piano."

  1. Thank you for this post. As I head into my studio this morning, the quote... everything you can imagine is real... strikes a chord.

  2. Your blog always manages to leave me with a smile and new perspectives. Color Blind Test For Kids is incredibly informative. Understanding color blindness at an early age can help kids embrace their unique vision and foster empathy towards others.
