I just wanted to share a great thing I heard recently:


It is so simple, but for some reason it feels like the opposite of what I have been doing. When I am afraid of something, I take it seriously and wonder what I should do to make the fear go away. When I’m inspired, I treat it like a whim. I have started trying to think of fear as a big, mean, bully that doesn’t deserve my time. It helps to think of a silly theme song like “I’m gonna knock you out, mama said knock you out.”

On the theme of inspiration . . . here are two more vessels. I call them “open” and “cup.” I am having a lot of fun making these- there are so many different possibilities, and as a recent teacher said about developing as an artist and developing a body of work, find a theme, and then make 10 or 20 pieces on that theme.
