This doesn't really categorize as "news" but I wanted to share a quote I recently came across that I love:

"Telling yourself you have all the time in the world, all the money in the world, all the colors in the palette, anything you want - that just kills creativity." - Jack White

Unlimited time and materials = stifled creativity.

happy new year!!!
Out with the old and in with the new! The newest news in my world is that I've been asked to be in a group show in early April at Chicago Art Source Gallery.
