This is a current view of our back yard looking towards the Carriage House Studio where I make most of my art. Yesterday Pearl and I went downtown to make a film of me creating a drawing of the city from one of the highway overpasses. It is a high up vantage point with a great view of the city skyline. As you draw you have the constant flow of traffic all around you. It is nice to some times get out of the studio and into the city to make art in a different location.
Making art in a place makes that place a holy place. This is not a scientific statement but a statement of faith. Making art is a way we link the spiritual world with the physical world. When we do this we are then standing on holy ground and everything changes. It is like punching a hole in the thick screen that holds back heaven's glory.
