uess what? Yesterday while I fired the kiln, my seventh grade art teacher, Dennis Wilson, stopped by the farm to donate a few beautiful old doors for the barn. One of my first clay projects in school was a mug in seventh grade that I could recreate exactly from memory. Mr Wilson, like many of the talented art teachers I had going through school, had a hilarious sense of humor. You can imagine how it feels to have him donate these doors and put them into the barn.
The Intention of this Blog
is to share my adventure of repurposing my family farm into art space and re-rooting myself in an 'old fashioned' way of life with my folks, the original Do-It-Yourselfers. It is a platform for me to share with others the things that I learn as I apprentice myself to my parents and grandparents.
"You cannot express, whatever your walk in life, unless you have a system of expression; and you cannot have a system of expression unless you have a prior system of cognate thinking and feeling; and you cannot have a system of thinking and feeling unless you have had a basic system of living." -Louis Sullivan "The Kindergarten Chats: The Art of Expression: 1"
