Art is what we call...
the thing an artist does.
It's not the medium or the oil or the price or whether it hangs on a wall or you eat it. What matters, what makes it art, is that the person who made it overcame the resistance, ignored the voice of doubt and made something worth making. Something risky. Something human.
Art is not in the eye of the beholder. It's in the soul of the artist.
Another fantastic quote posted on a blog I follow.
I totally agree the hardest part is starting the work. Tons of fear sets in, what will people think/say, but at the end of the day all that matters is that you poured your heart into it and enjoyed it.
I'm obsessed with architecture. It's an obsession that started in my childhood. I used to tape pieces of loose leaf paper together and draw out my dream home. There were always several versions going on at any given time. The above pix are from my trip to NYC back in November.
Simple I know but I love Mark Rothko paintings.
The above 2 pieces are from Mackenzie Childs who hand paints ceramics, furniture and tons of other things. I've loved her stuff forever. Reminds me of Alice & Wonderland. No 2 pieces in the ceramics are alike.
Me just piddlin' with my iPhone...bay bridge back to SF.
|Frank Gehry- Love his wacky buildings. I believe this is a hotel in Spain...not 100%.|
Do not underestimate the power of yard art.
