butterflyblue “Art is what we call...the thing an artist does.

It's not the medium or the oil or the price or whether it hangs on a wall or you eat it. What matters, what makes it art, is that the person who made it overcame the resistance, ignored the voice of doubt and made something worth making. Something risky. Something human.

Art is not in the ...eye of the beholder. It's in the soul of the artist.” ― Seth Godin

  •   beachbluster Glenda, I'm SO glad you posted. It is beyond wonderful to know you a little better. How lucky for your students to have you as their teacher. Surfing?- you're never too old, I promise! Just try it. You'll get addicted. Frustrated painter? well I hope to hear that story one day. Is there such a thing as a contented painter? Thank you again Glenda. Wonderful!...... 15h

butterflyblue I go down to the shore in the morning
and depending on the hour the waves
are rolling in or moving out,
and I say, oh, I am miserable,
what shall—
what should I do? And the sea says
in its lovely voice:
Excuse me, I have work to do.” ― Mary Oliver
