'Skill without imagination is craftsmanship and gives us many useful objects such as wickerwork picnic baskets. Imagination without skill gives us modern art.'
The Lizard, (detail)
Tom Stoppard, "Artist Descending a Staircase"
I’ve just noticed a massive red sticker on the bottom right corner of Johni’s painting, The Lizard
. Does this mean he’s sold a piece? Ma says it’s a cunning ruse and he put the sticker on himself to give the impression that they’re selling like hot cakes. Gosh, that works! Better get in quick before they’re all gone! They’ll make great Christmas Presents! *Jumps off balcony*
