  • I don't want to do it...Don't make me do it!

    Why did I kick and scream for years? “I don’t want to do it, don’t make me do it!” What is so terrible about technology in an artist’s mind? “What are you doing about getting your art into the market?” a friend asked who came for the weekend. “I will set up a Blog and put you on facebook.” And my answer was, “Why?” “It’s a great way to catalogue your work.
