Beginning The Wild Rumpus
Here’s a story that explains the origins of this blog and where it’s going:
Being a friendly sort of artist, I encourage people to ask questions when they're looking at my work. So, there I am, by my work, chatting with some friends during an open studios tour and, out of the corner of my eye, I notice someone taking time to carefully look at my personal favorite piece in the Books of Love’s Own Dream series. Prompted by his apparent interest, I ask whether he has any questions. Typically, people ask questions about what the piece is made of or what it’s “supposed to be.” But, this man says he doesn’t have any questions, next he begins formulating a thought that doesn’t quite turn into a question, and then he hits on what he wants to ask: How do you do it?
