How long do people look at your art? Do they ever give you some feedback that goes beyond their liking it? Real, thoughtful reactions to an artist’s work can be rare. I had the profound experience last weekend to have young women actually write with my work as an inspiration during A Day of Writing and Art.
I spent the morning taking photographs and helping the facilitators, and at lunch had an opportunity to join a panel of artists discussing with the young women about our creative processes, our experiences with successes and challenges, and why we made our art.
