“Artists are intuitive. They wait for inspiration. That’s what art is about – the intuitive, not the intellectual. Art about ideas stimulates ideas, but art that comes from inspiration stimulates feelings of happiness, innocence and beauty.” -Agnes Martin

I love that Agnes Martin quote. It says so much. It says why artists need solitude, quiet walks – less angry news. Even though I live in the woods, in the mountains and rarely turn on my television; I still get online. I’m not going to talk about politics. Differences of opinion are what make the world interesting to me. What I am tired of is the hate – the ugliness. And even though we’ve chosen our next president, I don’t think the ugliness will go away anytime soon. My studio is a great place to tune all that out and ‘get-lost’ making art. I am fortunate.

I am busy making work for Spotlight On Art . An invitational show/sale at Trinity School in Atlanta that’s been going on since 1982. I’m thrilled to be part of this show. Click on the link to learn more about it.

“I try to make something every day. I find that important. One doesn’t sit down and have a good idea and go out there and perform it. Pointless. Ideas, metaphors, things spiritual or real, occur out of practice. Go in there everyday – make something and something will flow out of that.” -Anish Kapoor

About Judy Shreve

Blogging for me is like keeping a journal which I have done in various forms since I can remember. But what’s great about this format is it offers an opportunity to explore all the things that interest me as an artist with others.

Blogging seems to strengthen that sense of being part of both something personal and something universal. It takes the journaling idea and expands it through visitor’s comments creating a valuable dialog that connects us to each other no matter where we live.

I enjoy responding to each comment and warmly welcome your visits.
