THE NUTTY THINGS ARTISTS DO
If you didn’t get the chance to see a screening of Tim’s Vermeer in Guelph, I highly recommend you see it somehow. (Allanah? I think I saw you leaving the 7:30 screening while I was in line for the later show).
When you feel burdened by a project, when you feel you’ve bit off more than you can chew, use this film for comparison and ask yourself:
• Am I learning Dutch?
• Am I making and grinding my own lenses?
• Am I attempting to recreate a painting by a master, when I have no training in painting whatsoever?
Sarah, maybe you want to make a info-graphic flo chart for all of us? Am I making and grinding my own lenses using only antiquated technology? If no, quit complaining and get back to work.
