Soft opening

If I am lucky, every once and awhile, I look at art and then experience and examine life differently. Then as a result of that visual and conceptual feedback loop, I look at art differently and that is what I experienced last night after Jonathan VanDyke's "soft opening" at Pocket Utopia. His art, within the space, changed me. That is the goal of art to effect change.

With a renewed sense of my ability to effect or rather be effected by change, I am going over to my favorite friend/collector's house tonight for a little plein air "free-spacing." I'll try to work on some of the "by-product" drawings by moonlight.
