I do not consider myself to be a deep thinker. I don't have a great education, I haven't traveled very much, never out of the US. I've never taken an art class. And I know that the art that I make is immature. But I try, that's all I can do, and I enjoy the heck out of it.
Lately I've been looking as some artist that really pour themselves into their art.
Their ideas, beliefs, emotions, and love. It's awesome. One artist brought me to tears. She made a series of assemblages about the Holocaust. It was something that had touched her family. The art was both tragic and beautiful. A legacy to a horrible event in history.
My art will never reach that caliber. I'm just not that good at it, and I know it. But I praise the ones who are. They make me want to do better. They touch something inside of me. I guess thats what art is supposed to do, right.
