Where Does Art Reside ?

Overcoming Obstacles

Leave a comment

Where does “art” reside ?  In the intent of the maker? In the piece itself? In the response of the viewer? In the space between?”  This quote is from a book called, THE VIEW FROM THE STUDIO DOOR : How  Artists Find Their Way in an Uncertain World, by Ted Orland.  This author also has written a book called ART AND FEAR.  Both books are valuable  in helping artists surmount their creative  obstacles. As I now embark on BLOGGING , I am encountering lots of new obstacles and will use the things i’ve learned from these books and try to apply them to my learning process  with creating my blogsite.

The focus of my blog  will be to help my readers gain confidence in their creative process just as I gain confidence in my blogging process.  Please accompany me on this, our mutual path to discovery.
