Notice the Objects You Notice
A 9x12 pen, brush, ink, wash, and pastel drawing of the painting I am currently working on. It depicts the corner of 19th Street looking under the Gowanus Expressway at Third Avenue in Brooklyn.
Here's another interesting comment from the book Art and Fear: "To see things is to enhance your sense of wonder both for the singular pattern of your own experience, and for the meta-patterns that shape all experience. All this suggests a useful working approach to making art: notice the objects you notice. (e.g. Read that sentence again.) Or put another way: make objects that talk--and then listen to them."
