I went to the "Jasper Johns" 41 Years of Prints" at the Myrtle Beach Art Museum yesterday. I read this quote and it really rang true.
Sometime during the mid-50's, I said, "I am an artist." Before that, for many years, I had said, "I am going to be an artist." Then I went through a change of mind and a change of heart. What made "going to be an artist" into "being an artist" was in part, a spiritual change. Jasper Johns
He is truly an inspiration.
I am going to have a brief story and identity card attached to each doll. These ideas seem to present themselves while I am in the process of creating, so I thought it would be fun to name them and give them each a story. I will be listing them on etsy in the near future.
