A friend recently shared this link – New Rules of Public Art - and I especially like Rule No. 06, which sums up part of my inspiration for The Found Painting Project.
“Rule No. 06: DEMAND MORE THAN FIREWORKS.
Believe in the quiet, unexpected encounter as much as the magic of the mass spectacle. It’s often in the silence of a solitary moment, or in a shared moment of recognition, rather than the exhilaration of whizzes and bangs, that transformation occurs.”
I hope everyone enjoys the large firework displays that mark the Fourth of July as well as the small sparks that mark meaningful moments in every day life.
