art is neat {as in, cool}

“What art offers is space – a certain breathing room for the spirit.”
John Updike

In real life, art is not a neat endeavor.

Case in point: our breakfast table, a week ago.

The girls are building marshmallow towers with toothpicks + marshmallows, Kimba is ready to pounce on any marshmallow that falls, the girls are making necklaces with the beads we just got, I'm drawing faces in the moleskine with an index card of faces from ICAD for reference, my younger daughter's painted matryoshka dolls, my older daughter's sharpies and papermate markers for drawing mandalas and mermaids, and I was finishing Rice Freeman-Zachary's Living the Creative Life (which I enjoyed).

So much fostering of the creative spirit is lovely to see. Talent abounds!

Seems you would be glad someone wanted to share your creations. But you make it sound bad saying posting art is uncool i would have shared your site with 1800 people mostly artist.s But if you think some one liking your works enough to share is uncool good luck selling much and by the way Goggle my author name and learn something. Feel free to re post any of my art That would be so cool. even add it to your site if it would progress the sales of your works. I know copy right law been an artist for 40 years and you can post but don't print or copy! have a good day that is how your very strongly worded web page made me feel just honest imput.
