The latest magazine came at the end of last week and I was anxiously anticipating the three day weekend because I was sure I could find time to do some reading.
There are a lot of great artists profiled in this issue. I am especially fond of some of the quotes offered for inspiration.
"To love what you do and feel that it matters...how could anything be more fun?" - Katherine Graham
"Art is the only way to run away without leaving home." - Twyla Tharp
The photography is amazing! The table of contents always shows off some of the best images and gives you a preview of what to expect.
Side note: I am someone who reads a magazine from cover to cover, beginning on the first page and going through to the end. I used to think this was the only way to read. Later, I met friends who (prepare yourself) skip around from article to article (gasp!). What is your preference?
The feature on Jenni Bowlin Studio is fantastic! I think Jenni and I could be good friends. I have come to this conclusion because everything in the photos looks like something I would buy or collect or scavenge at a tag sale/flea market/auction.
And, her favorite quote is actually lyrics from The Avett Brothers, some of my favorite music of the moment.
There was a dream.
One day I could see it.
Like a bird in a cage
I broke in and demanded
that somebody free it.
Do you see those little wooden drawers and the skeleton keys on the pin board?...the wooden boxes and crates? Sigh. I could spend all day going through her inventory.
The vintage cabinet with wire baskets on top - love! Star garland on the child mannequin - precious! The old door with faded paint - stunning!
