They put me in a good mood. I was thinking and thinking all summer, what could I come up with that people would love to see. I went over the moon, haha for the plate.
I made this same face in an illustration I made, and I love making things useful. I have a hard time justifying a large expenditure on things that sit on the wall. And I know the amount of energy that goes into a painting or drawing, but there is something about useful. I guess my Mom put that idea into my head. She was always saying I can't get a job as an artist but then she would admire art so much.
Confused for so long, I just gave in and became an artist, and a potter. I could always make money at pottery. Just never at painting and drawing. Maybe the tide is turning
