Pretend art and other things celebrating my weirdness, I mean uniqueness

My mom bought the green hat as a joke. Seems like one of her grandsons has to get that hat out every once in awhile at family gatherings. In a couple of the pictures, my great-nephew is trying on my dad's cowboy hat. Then there's one of my sisters and me in our grandma's hats.
My Oklahoma nephews taught me about flat-bills and that you are supposed to keep the stickers on and wear them crooked. Too bad I lost the picture when they dressed up their father and pulled his pants down to hip level. He was stylin'.
Visit Yosemite or, oh heck, visit every national park in the U.S.
A really good pot is in the details. --Doug Casebeer at the Ceramics Workshop in Jamaica '10
There's only one way to grow while making art: take risks and allow yourself to make a lot of bad work, then look at it. I consider what is working well, what missed the mark or confused the reading, what needs to be adjusted on the next one. --Linda Arbuckle in The Penland Book of Ceramics
All great actions have been simple, and all great pictures are. --Ralph Waldo Emerson
