Hit another yard sale and came up with some vintage pink luster spatterware (or pink splattered lusterware)! Either way I’m a pushover for painting props for my roses! I love the chaos of the splatters, like a blight that blooms on pottery. The luster is really fun to paint too!
PRETTY IN PINK. FLOWER ART.
This from Audrey Niffenegger’s fictional character Clare in THE TIME TRAVELER’S WIFE ’03:
“The compelling thing about making art—-or making anything, I suppose—is the moment when the vaporous, insubstantial idea becomes a solid “there”, a thing, a substance in a world of substances. Circe, Nimbue, Artemis, Athena, all the old sorceresses: they must have know the feeling as they transformed mere men into fabulous creatures, stole the secrets of the magicians, disposed armies: ah, look, there it is, the new thing. Call it a swine, a war, a laurel tree. CALL IT ART.”
Small magic, large magic, deferred magic, ALL things magical in ART. BE
