30+ years of paintings, talked about one painting at a time: what went into the paintings, what I was trying to say, what was happening at the time of my life that I made the paintings. The paintings themselves are narrative, and this adds a little more to the story that they tell.

This was my first child, so I had no idea how the process of reading unfolded. I thought perhaps it had just come to her, out of the blue, suddenly able to read big books with small print. Her concentration was obvious. Clearly, for my daughter, reading was an important and weighty matter. Of course, as it turned out, she was years away from reading the kind of book that sat in her lap. She had watched us read and knew how important it was, and therefore, it mattered to her. For all intents and purposes, she was reading, or at least learning the attitudes and postures that went with the process. And really, for all intents and purposes, those things mattered just as much as anything else.

I wonder what her process would have been if she had only witnessed you reading on a Kindle/etc.... sigh.ReplyDelete

I love when an observation becomes a piece of art, the spark lit and now there is the fire, a beautiful piece of art.ReplyDelete
