Control your destiny or someone else will!

BAD! Kitty Art Studio

Quote for today:
"By the time the child can draw more that scribble, by the age of four or five years, an already well-formed body of conceptual knowledge formulated in language dominates his memory and controls his graphic work. Drawings are graphic accounts of essentially verbal processes. As an essentially verbal education gains control, the child abandons his graphic efforts and relies almost entirely on words. Language has first spoilt drawing and then swallowed it up completely."
~Karl Buhler

So, the POD (one post down) people painting is filled in and dry enough to start the next phase. I am glad that I don't like it...because then I can just play and see what happens with no attachment to the end result. I like it when that happens.
I'll be very busy today with clients, and this new work...and trying to feel better...I am not sure why I am running fevers all the time of late but they are kicking my ass. Gotta go see the doctor I guess, and I hate that, with purple passion.
Whatever, I'm going to put that off for now.
Been stressing out...been too uptight...been a little depressed and missing my oldest son.
Things I can't control.
Don't have much else to say...except I will continue on and see what happens.
I can only control me...
and I have a lot of work to do, so I will do it with high expectations of myself
and see what happens.
I think I am just tired of being so sick for the last week and a half,
maybe that's it...I have the blues.
Later Taters,
Heather

Love the quote, once again. I guess I never thought of it that way. My daughter began drawing way before writing...it seems so natural for children, doesn't it.

You gotta love when that happens, ie., sometimes my biggest goofs turn into breakthroughs - so keep going on this piece!

Feel Better!

Sounds like the Pod person will be lots of fun to work on. Perhaps just what you need right now...a little play. Hope you feel better soon.

Interesting. I've always been a word person and still draw the way I did in kindergarten - very poorly. But perhaps my artistic spirit was stymied early on because I do see things visually and even my words make more sense to me if I display them visually.
