As I have stated before, when my wife and I started making Cairns it was out of an attempt to mix art with exercise and not in any way meant to be malicious. On a visit to the John Michael Kohler Art Center yesterday we picked up the book, “The Guerilla Art Book” by Keri Smith and were impressed with her concern for the environment to the point of giving directions for making Wheat Paste because of its environmentally safe nature. We laughed at the many ideas which for the most part where aimed at brightening people’s lives and making the world a happier place. This has always been the spirit in which we have approached our art. I am inspired for a new year.
