like he said



"every child is an artist. the problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up." pablo picasso

currently taken with the notion that she never left me. very willing to get my hands dirty these days though I am much more critical and less willing to experiment than I ever remember being. what happens to us? chipping away to see if the wild-style freeform painter/drawer/gluer/project girl still resides in this skin. I think that's a little bit of her in the photo above, attempting to resurface.

(embarking on my first ever postcard swap)

  1. maybe you just need to let her play more often.
    Usually I get a bit braver, when I am trying something new?
    can't wait to see what bubbles up.

  6. I'm the photographic culprit. I took a couple of shots of Andrea at work yesterday. It was very cool to see all her stuff layed out like this with the great lighting and with all the colors here.
