A while back renowned sculptor Susan Clinard graced Lucky Compiler with precious words of wisdom. Here is a snippet of the actual article.
You are a great observer of life and your work bears obvious signs of that. How did you train your mind with the power of observation since the early days?
I trusted. From an early age I had an innate sense that the things I saw in nature, the people I knew, and experiences I had (difficult and otherwise) was to be listened to. Thinking in the present like this through the years has helped me realize that judging people before you get to know them, for example, is meaningless. We all experience so much of the same things … how we perceive beauty, how we hurt.
There is what I call a ‘call and response’ out there. I observe the call… from small things like a bird dashing in front of me momentarily and I respond to it. I laugh… maybe think about the flight pattern of that bird… maybe it finds its way into my art at some point. It is a treasured cycle of life communication.
