Your authentic creative work

"Maps and memories are bound together, a little as songs and love affairs are. The artifact envelops the emotion, and then the emotion stores away in the artifact."
Adam Gopnik {quoted in Mapping Manhattan}

playing around with composition


art is what you do

choose to define yourself as an artist

if you wish

{in addition to archeologist, Excel-expert, quiche-baker, hydrangea-gardener, flight attendant, microbiologist}

you do not need permission

or a certification

or a degree in art

or the approval of Miss Snotwhistle from 3rd grade Art Theory

your work does not need to break the paradigms of watercolor composition

nor must you lounge at art galleries

or collect commissions for your work

you don't need an ISBN#

just do your authentic creative work
