Having been away from my computer for a few days, I'm back, and in keeping with my turning over a new, streamlined leaf this week, I cleaned up my blog look a tad. The book background was beginning to show up everywhere, so I reverted to my previous blog look.
Did anybody notice?
Also contemplating these two quotes swiped from Darcy Pattison's blog:
The function of the overwhelming majority of your artwork (including writing) is simply to teach you how to make the small fraction of your artwork that soars. —
David Bayles & Ted Orland, Art and Fear: Observations on the Perils (and Rewards) of Artmaking
Before the gates of excellence, the gods have placed sweat. –
(I've always loved that one from Katherine Paterson.)
Darcy titled her blog post Never Quit. To that I say, Amen...
