“Making your unknown known is the important thing.”

“Where I was born and where and how I have lived is unimportant. It is what I have done with where I have been that should be of interest.”

“Now and then when I get an idea for a picture, I think, how ordinary. Why paint that old rock? Why not go for a walk instead? But then I realise that to someone else it may not seem so ordinary.”

“I don’t see why we ever think of what others think of what we do — no matter who they are. Isn’t it enough just to express yourself?”

“The days you work are the best days.”

Esmé

Yup – we’ve got a new member in our family now.  Esmé comes from the Weld Co. Humane Society.  We drove up to Greeley and picked her out yesterday, but we don’t get to bring here home until tomorrow.  Needless to say, we are VERY excited!

I’ve said in the past that when I grow up I want to be a Japanese village potter/crazy cat lady.  Well…I am a potter…and now I have a cat!

Looks like it’s time to reread Nine Stories.

Just so you know, I didn’t say this:

Matt’s blog today: a really good digital art professor and ninja  once told me: “always be looking, always be reading, always be writing, always be making. these four things complete a contemporary artistic practice.”
