So the saying goes anyways. I think that the opposite is true of artists – the ones who find themselves interested in the smallest things often have the greatest mind, and loads of artistic talent. We (and by this I mean Americans) are trained as a society to think big – we want the biggest meals, the largest houses, the tank of an SUV. I feel like we are trained to see the mountain but ignore the beautiful tiny wildflowers that grow on it’s side. Being an artist is about breaking that mold – at least it has been for me. There is always a place for that mountain landscape, but it’s the artist that can capture the dew drop on a branch that really fascinates me.
