We had the misfortune to lose a beloved family member this past week. He was a larger than life ..funny talented man with a big heart. The family brought the usual photos and mementos to the service and I was struck by two stunning folk art turkeys he had made out of scraps of wood and twigs. They epitomized folk art! It reminded me again what I keep telling people,,you don't NEED anything special to create art. No fancy tools, degrees,galleries or material. you need to NEED to make something. The fundamental desire to create something that pleases YOU. Whether its functional or just whimsical. True Art can be a beautiful painting or a silly twig turkey that makes people smile and stays tucked in a corner if their hearts!
