I was reminded yesterday that life is short and making art is really fun! (Remember that?!) When art making stops being fun, it becomes an obligation, a duty. When fun-making is no longer present, the artwork shifts hands. It no longer belongs to me but is now owned by someone or something: a deadline, an exhibition, a professor, a boss, a commercial market.
As a reminder that being an artist is FUN, I share with you a biography of myself, a la Vasari. For my readers that are unfamiliar with who Vasari is, he is most well known today for having published Lives of the Most Excellent Painters, Sculptors, and Architects, from Cimabue to Our Times or Lives in the 16th century. Vasari was the first art historian, essentially and wrote a collection (read: lots) of artist biographies.
