The Beginning

This image has been in my head and heart since I made it.

When You Know

This image has been in my head since I made it.

Which was right after Gavriel Lipkind cautioned me to be careful near his cello.

He was right. My home equity line would have been woefully inadequate to pay for it’s replacement.

If you are born an artist, you are born an artist. Not so easy. But undeniable. And it nourishes, beyond food.

Photographer Pandemic Therapy #3

Sunday got busy so I watched 60 Minutes tonight. And heard a voice from long ago and one I thought impossible.

Today, I stood in the parking lot of a dance school discussing their outdoor recital and praised their endurance.

Two weeks ago, I photographed dancers in theater without audience – in masks.

And un-friended a sister-in-law who sniped about that.

A young woman who I greatly admire described her moment when she knew she was an artist

I was sixty before I had the courage

Art matters
