People like to say that they could’ve made this piece of art.  They could’ve.  But they didn’t.

People like to say they hate it because it’s minimal and takes very little talent to paint a whole canvas a solid primary color.

People like to be critical.

People like to think they know everything about art.

Guess who loved this piece?  This 6 year old lovely.  Yes.  Art doesn’t have to be complex and inventive to be great.  It can be whatever it wants.  People will still run through the museum to get to it after looking at sterile still lives and portraits.  This 6 year old ran because it’s familiar and comforting and she can relate to it even though she doesn’t know the deep seeded meaning behind it.  People will still stretch their arms out and say, ‘This one is my favorite!’ just like she did.

Word to your mother.


I love you, sunshine.

It is so sunny and warm.  I love it.  I want to play hookie all day. 

I just want to lay in the grass that’s starting to get green…it’s still a little crunchy and mushy from the winter.  It’s getting there though.  You go, photosynthesis! 

It’s amazing really, isn’t it?  One day it’s cold, icy and gray.  The next it’s warm, sunny, and colorful.  Thank goodness for the season change.  My brain needs all this new found, pure vitamin D. 

And coffee too…my brain needs coffee too.
