   “What is art? What is not art? How does an “artist” explain the deep personal need to create? Some folks think we work to have something to look at, to save a memory, a feeling or to match the couch. They don’t know the wonderful place the artists go to where the ideas flow freely and the materials work just the way we envisioned. It doesn’t happen all the time but when it does it’s magic and that’s why we artists keep knocking on that door. Allow yourself to experiment, then try to make friends with the results.”
