I've had my hands full the last few days, but that's not why I haven't posted. It's just that I haven't had much to say. While fulfilling my usual obligations, my mind has been busy thinking about a project that involves six pieces of artwork that have a deadline. Four are done, although by no means are they final. I'll decide when I decide! I've also been thinking about honesty in asssessing artwork. I'm dismayed when I see mediocre work being hailed as fabulous and gorgeous by people who should know better. That's not helpful or kind, it's detrimental; it keeps the person stuck in a mediocre place. Rather, when asked to assess something, we should be honest and constructive, and do it kindly. We need to pull people up, not keep them down. That's my opinion.
