"Artists can color the sky red because they know it's blue. Those of us who aren't artists must color things the way they really are or people might think we're stupid." ~Jules Feiffer
Small group tonight. Getting back into fall schedules? A couple young students returned. Ellen brought music. It was good to hear Norah Jones after a long spell and ended evening with some Jazz. Been some time since I've drawn Gerry and todays quotes left me considering that yes because I am an artist the skies can be red rather than blue as we well know it to be, so I challenged myself with black paper and did well while I worked on instinct but felt extremely challenged when I tried to control the drawing. I suppose todays lesson could very well be to let go and go with the flow. Accurate perception is much less important than creating new vision.
