Some goals

Untitled Neckpiece 30x1.5" sterling silver;  Kathleen Faulkner

Another year:  Art Talk is two years old this month.  I must admit that I'm proud of myself for sticking with it this long.

Someone said that every drawing is a self portrait.  I tend to believe that to be true of all mediums and, if that's the case, I've put myself out there to the whole world  as all artists do when their work is viewed by the public.  The good news is that this blog is a vehicle for connection.  I feel like I'm talking to a friend when I write these posts.

I have two goals for this blog:  a place to view my work and think about art and a place to be reminded, now and then, of the mystery and beauty of wild places; vital, living environments that should be allowed to exist simply because they exist.

My hope is to move someone, somewhere, 
a millionth of an inch*

“Have big dreams but focus only on what you can control: your own thoughts, words and actions. This was Gandhi’s way … in the words of poet Gary Snyder,
our job is to move the world a millionth of an inch.”
