My favorite part of the weekend was meeting an eight year old who was already very serious about his art. He could name all the artists who inspire him most, and he was full of questions about how I work. His existence made me happy for the world.

Mon moment préféré du weekend était un enfant de huit ans qui était déjà très sérieux au sujet de son art. Il pouvait nommer tous les artistes qui l’ont inspiré, et il avait plein de questions sur la façon dont je travaille. Je suis ravie pour le monde que ce jeune homme existe.

Go Gwenn!

Great explanation about the circle/coin concept. That makes total sense. And I hadn’t thought about the difficulty of composing on a circle. You don’t realize how much you rely on the frame of the canvas/board/whatever until you mix up that format. Problem solved!

I hope the show is a success for you. It certainly looks good from this end.

@Libby: Circles are fun—once you get used to them! smile I like hexagons too and other odd-shaped things, like furniture and bags. And what we can do certainly is defined by our supports, both literally and metaphorically…
