Taking a walk to clear my head

I am ambivalent about the art world.  And fascinated at the same time.  For some, art is a way to visually express ideas – sometimes very complex ideas – in ways that words can’t.  But I need the words and often can’t “get” the art without an explanation.  That frustrates me.  Yet, sometimes the explanation brings an understanding and appreciation for ideas I had never considered before.

I admire the artists who start with a concept and then make the art.

It doesn’t work that way for me.  I make the pictures and wait for them to speak to me.
