Oscar Wilde Lecture to Art Students
I visited Leslie Jackson yesterday in her studio. She has a great studio. I have been meaning to get over to visit her since I met her last summer and I finally did. I had a good talk with her. It is difficult to meet other artists who are committed to the art. She passed on a print out of Oscar Wilde's Lecture to Art Students. I really appreciate that she did. It helps to get perspective from other artists.
It is difficult to connect with artists. After weeding out the egomaniacs and dilettantes there isn't much left. Leslie is the real thing. It takes a while in Eugene but after a while the gems appear.
