Today's Daily Abstract is finished on a 6 x 6" paper and mounted in an 8" x 10" mat.
One should never be nervous about being asked to tackle anything. One has all the power necessary to achieve everything within oneself. It is only necessary to remember the power. If people are nervous it is because they forget their potentialities and remember their limitations.
-Frank Lloyd Wright-
When teaching, students often figured that if an assignment was simple that also meant it was easy. As an adult we often look for "the easy way out". We search for an easy solution to a problem, the magic bullet that will solve everything. Easy is like making a wish and believing it will come true.
Often times on Final Friday, in the studio, a student from one of the local art schools will ask the question, "What do you do to get better at your art?" My usual response is that, "It's simple, I paint every day." Now on the surface this does sound simple, I get to do something I love everyday. The truth is anything but simple. In order to accomplish this there must be a marriage, if you will, between your heart and your head. This union brings together the idea of knowing what you need to do and the long range commitment to follow through.
I am really enjoying our morning visits. If you are enjoying them,I hope you will share these simple thought and paintings with a friend or family.
