  • A Great Art Project, Part 2
    on Mar 4, 2011 in Artistic Process
    Because it can be somewhat intimidating buying your first art supplies when you begin to paint (not to mention overwhelming, confusing and expensive), I offer here a list of materials to get you started (this is for acrylic, although most of these co...
  • A Great Art Project, Part 1
    on Mar 3, 2011 in Artistic Process
    If you’re one of my students reading this right now I know you’ll chuckle to see me writing any kind of “how to” piece on making art. That’s because over all my years of teaching I have discouraged my students from reading or even l...
  • The Cookie Thief
    on Mar 2, 2011 in Wisdom Wednesdays
    Once again, I am guilty of losing the source of this quite sweet poem. It’s such a great reminder that what we think we’re seeing isn’t always what’s real, so I wanted to share it with you. Let’s all try to be flexible with our perceptions!
  • A Walk In the Snow
    on Mar 1, 2011 in Southwest Living
    Another big storm blew in today. Something you may not know about us: Kelee and I walk in ALL kinds of weather! So I thought you might like to come along. Bundle up like I did, muffler, warm hat, REI gloves, a long wool coat, flannel and fleece, not...
  • Being Humbled
    on Feb 28, 2011 in An Artful Life
    A friend asked me the other day if I have been humbled. It’s a good and a fair question. I don’t know how much you think about this. I really hadn’t until he brought it up. He didn’t mean it in the sense of loosing power or strength.
  • Art Matters: Alvaro Cardona-Hine answers Why Is Art Important?
    on Feb 25, 2011 in Artistic Process
    From the very beginning, whenever man has found a moment he doesn’t have to devote to survival, he looks around, gauges the distance, assesses the world, does this against himself, against his temporal weakness. At first, those moments must have be...
  • Craig Scogin On Why Art Is Important
    on Feb 24, 2011 in Artistic Process
    My friend, photographer Craig Scogin (previous posts Not Really New… Not Really Mexico and Craig Scogin On What Is Art?), offers his views on why art is important. All photographs in today’s post were shot by Craig. I have been asked why art is i...
  • The High Road Artist’s 100th Post!
    on Feb 23, 2011 in An Artful Life
    Today is a rather momentous day so I’m going to forego our regular Wisdom Wednesday entry. Instead I want to mark this particular day because it is our 100th post. Wow! About 5 months ago I started this project with Adam Wimsatt. He handles all the...
  • Why Is Art Important?
    on Feb 22, 2011 in Artistic Process
    Why is art important? As I’ve pondered this question, I’ve realized there is no way I can depersonalize my answer. I honestly can’t say why art is important to another but I can express my experience. I would love to get your though...
  • My Dog Is A Bigot!
    on Feb 21, 2011 in Southwest Living
    I have to admit an ugly truth about my dog, Kelee. He’s a cow bigot. I’ve come to this conclusion because of his somewhat selective behavior. A small herd of free-range cattle moved through this morning a couple pastures away from my house, a...
