At last Friday's WK lecture Wolf began by saying that his talk would be "off the cuff" since he speaks better that way. Then he began to talk about "what makes an artist special" His words wove in and out. He said his Grandmother made him special, feel talented. She would share his work with everyone. He went on to talk about the let down one feels after art school when all of a sudden you aren't special anymore. That's when the real work starts. His advice was: don't think conventionally. Rules will hold you back. Invent color, make it come to life. Find who you really are.
This morning the air was full of humidity. I LOVE that. Color saturates those water particles. Color has always been the key for me. Learning to think value first was the work. You don't have to "make yourself," just be yourself.
