An artist . . . must be unprejudiced toward, or unaffected by, the actual nature of what he is observing. He sees, without self-conscious effort, beauty where superficial minds see only ugliness. —
Yesterday marked the one-month anniversary of my new combined blog and website, and a little over four years since I initially started my art blog.
When I began my blog, I did not have a clear idea of why I was starting a blog (read my tiny first post). I started it because I could, I guess.
It's my birthday!
And it's a perfect spring day here in Austin. It's sunny and warm, and the trees are all leafing out in a lovely shade of fresh green. My bougainvillea, lantana, and various other flowering plants are in spectacular bloom. My garden presented me today with the 4 beautiful calla lilies you see here.
