It's Good to Be Bad
The press on the first West Coast Bad Art Night at my house last Friday night is in and it's good, or is it bad? Because right now, bad is good.
Reporter Stacy Trevenon and staff photographer Lars Howlett did a great job of writing about the first Bad Art Night, in words and pictures. They really got what it is all about, which is the luxury of creating imperfect things and finding the beauty in the mistakes.
I love the quote they included in the box:
“Some of the best art I’ve ever made has been because there has been an accident. Something unintended: I spilled on a painting, it didn’t go the way I wanted it to — it was exactly what the piece of art needed.”
Claire says I say this all the time. Must be true for me.
