I was in the eighth grade and was told not to even think about going to college. I couldn’t add or subtract, never could memorize multiplication tables, was advised against taking algebra, geometry, physics, chemistry. Since I was good with my hands I was advised to aim for trade school, perhaps body and fender work. Never let anyone define what you are capable of by using parameters that don’t apply to you. I applied to a junior college in my hometown with open enrollment, got in and embarked on a career in the visual arts. PAINTING: POWERS OF OBSERVATION: Chuck Close: Note To Younger Self

Lead the Field Tonight I want to tell a personal story and give a recommendation for Earl Nightingales "Lead the Field". Above is an old clip from when Earl had a television program. I never saw that, and had no idea who he was until........... I had a gallery in Rockport , a shoestring undercapitalized operation, and I wasn't making enough money to pay my bills., I was making some money, but not enough.
Adamo Macri - Google+ Quote from the 2007 docummentary "Lynch (One)". "Forget being the best of anything. That's the fruit of the action, and you do the work -they say- for the doing, not the fruit. You can never really know how it's gonna turn out in the world but you know if you enjoy doing it. And ideas start flowing and you start getting, you know, excited about stuff. Then you're having a great time in the doing and that's what it's all about.

Time management for artists I think a lot of us, especially if we are doing this full time, have difficulties in managing our time properly. Its difficult to organize a day when there are 20 things you'd like to paint, emails to respond too, late night deadlines that screw up the next days plans, people knocking on your door thinking that because you are a self employed artist and don;t punch a "normal" clock, you don't have any proper responsibilities and can drop anything you are doing because someone needs a favour. We have commissions to handle, money to manage, shows to submit to.

Lots of reasons I believe, from the ethical to the biggest one... money. Furthermore, many scientists believe that bringing them back to life would solve world hunger. A mammoth has a huge amount of meat on it and could survive in temperatures where other animals wouldn't be able to. So, imagine Russian/Siberian filled with hundreds of thousands of wooly mammoths and factories turning them into meat. Couple with the fact it'll leave A LOT of fur left over, which could be used to make clothes and various other things.... would be a definate fashion style as well as use in blankets and carpets in colder climates. Then there is stuff we don't know about.. such as internal organs which could provide help to science and such. The oldest art in the Americas depicts a 13,000 year old mammoth
