<<I feel indeed
qualified to make a silk purse from a sow's ear. >>
One of the highest compliments paid to me as an artist was when an art critic
wrote in a review that I could "Make art out of air". This was such a
wonderful thing to say. I always remember that comment when I am put in a
position of teaching with NO money, NO supplies, and NO support. I just look
around the room and say "Well there IS air here!" and then I get to work!
