Happy Birthday: Janine Antoni

"I start with an intention and then pay close attention to what is happening...This shift in my creative process has arisen because of my daughter. As a mother, you have to be flexible, spontaneous, and responsive in the moment. Nothing is predictable." ~Janine Antoni

Book Review: Portait Painting Atelier

Before the holiday break I had read The Creative Habit by Twyla Tharp. The book had likened  developing skills to hands on a clock. After you've "mastered" a skill you should push yourself to work on the next technique. At some point, you'll move back around the "clock" to the original skill you mastered and will have to refresh yourself on it. Well, that's how I felt about painting. I hadn't worked in color for a really long time and decided the holiday break would be a good time to revisit that part of the skill "clock".
