Where Does Art Reside ?

ART QUOTE OF THE DAY

1 Comment

It is a custom of mine to write an inspiring art  quote on the blackboard in my classroom each time I have class. I decided I will do the same with my blog. A daily  inspiration that may get your creative motor running so to speak . Here is my first one . Enjoy.

“Making art is about making choices. There are a surprising number to be made even when you are contemplating something as simple as an apple.  An apple may be red or green, or yellow or various mixtures. It can be rotting or fresh, sliced or whole, pure or scarred. Full or shriveled.  It can be the apple Eve presented to Adam, Snow White’s apple, Little Red Riding Hood’s apple, the BIG  apple. You can see how the form and meaning change  with each  one of these decisions.”

  1. Love this idea. You know what’s funny? I just decided this morning to do an “Art Tip of the Week” on my blog. Sort of similar. Cool.
