“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.
These pieces sold this past month. YAY! Yippee! Thank you so much – galleries and buyers!

Now back to the studio. I’m only halfway ready for the Spotlight On Art show.
“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
