I started this art blog* to put all of my notes from art school online in one place — mostly for my own convenience, but if anyone else benefits from my clumsily compiled notes (often with no real date), that’s good, too.

I’ve back-dated these posts, back to the beginning of when I started my first art blog, with a range (so far) from 3/20/05 – 4/20/05.

If I find more, I’ll add them on with back dates in 2005 as well.

*Note: referring to ArtNotes, which has been compiled in with my first ArtBlog, which together have now been combined with my website.

Just do your work. And if the world needs your work it will come and get you. And if it doesn’t, do your work anyway. You can have fantasies about having control over the world, but I know I can barely control my kitchen sink. That is the grace I’m given. Because when one can control things, one is limited to one’s own vision.

  • That’s some excellent art, Marilyn. Respect. I enjoyed the thoughts and feelings this piece provoked. Fantastic use of shape and color to convey emotion. Hard to put it into words so I’ll have to assure you that it’s super-groovy. Thanks for creating and sharing. Keep up the great work.
