A new moon teaches gradualness
and deliberation and how one gives birth to oneself slowly.
Patience with small details
makes perfect a large work,
like the universe.
I visited a few regional museums this winter/Spring-The Holter Museum and the Archie Bray in Helena, Montana in April. I had especially wanted to see Pam Caughey's of Hamilton, Montana exhibit at the Holter-and it certainly did not disappoint! I admire her abstract style. I attended the 49th Annual Art Auction at the Yellowstone Art Museum in March. I also took a wonderful class last weekend at the YAM, 'The Conversation of Drawing'. My friend Robin Earle, the current artist in residence, facilitated. I so enjoyed it! Juane Quick-to-See's exhibit was our starting point. Icons, symbols, mark-making...it really helped to jump start my art making after a loooong, cold, winter season. The inspiration and filling of the soul always make me wonder why I don't stop into the art museums more often.
They Can Only Be Carried.
"Some things in life cannot be fixed.
They can only be carried."
Life events often compel me to create a piece of art to help me understand them. Once again, the website UPWORTHY has helped garnished my artwork with words that I often feel, but cannot speak. The words give artwork voice. I've included the article the title came from-thank you again UPWORTHY for your insightful, meaningful work.
