Monday Mornings: Being in the Present
I joined David and a few of his students for a field trip on Friday where we visited the Present Tense exhibit at the Dixon. If you haven't been yet, you must go! It runs through Sunday, April 14, 2013 and explores art made in Memphis from 2001- the present.
I gawked at this painting for a long time and left teeming with inspiration for future paintings. I love visiting new exhibits. They make you focus on the art in front of you and force you to be present for a bit as you examine something that was painted in the past. I'm always invigorated, always pushed to be a better artist and to try new things. Here's to being in the present today and pushing towards new and great things!
