And I just love this!


It has got to be a slow newsday in Trail, BC (and by extension in the rest of the Canwest/Global empire, because they decided to republish it on their website). How else to account for an article on how to write an artists' statement?

My absolute favorite line from the article?
"If you wish to label your paintings with a particular historical category, do not call yourself an impressionist, cubist, fauvist, etc. These are historical movements and all the people that were involved in them are long dead. Instead try, "I paint in the style of an impressionist." Or better yet, call your self a post-modernist. It is the art movement that we are in."
