Quote of the Day (and a little site news)

Today's quote was brought to my attention by David Bayles and Ted Orland, in their excellent book on the process of artmaking, Art & Fear: Observations On the Perils (and Rewards) of Artmaking. More on this little gem later. For now, the quote:

Life is short, art long, opportunity fleeting, experience treacherous, judgement difficult.

~~ Hippocrates (460-400 B.C.)

If you frequent this blog with any regularity (does anyone frequent this blog, the forlorn blogger might wonder?), you'll notice how quiet things have been. Ah, the "Dog Days" are here. I've been busy on other projects, including art. I'm accumulating a backlog of drawings, photographs and the like that need to be shared.

In the meantime, why not go to the beach?
