Cooking with Artists

Screen Shot 2021-04-04 at 12.29.57 AM

I was happy to see that the Museum of Modern Art has ongoing series with chef Mina Stone. Several episodes are posted below, but have fun exploring the whole series on MoMA’s website. And save a link to that page. I believe they will continue to post new episodes.

Evolving Through Art


I love the work of Masako Miki. (I’m also tickled pink that she lives somewhat near me! How cool is that?) Her work communicates the importance of adaptation and community. A sense of fluidity through culture and connection.

To understand the blog post title you’ll have to watch the video. It’s of Firelei Báez in New York, discussing her artwork.

There was a video I wanted to share with you. But I wasn’t able to embed it in the blog. You’ll have to CLICK HERE to watch it. It’s so good! You’re gonna love it. Leonardo Drew’s work will blow you away. You’ve got to see him in his art studio, explaining his process.

Critique By Creating


“The promises of this world are, for the most part, vain phantoms; and to confide in one’s self, and become something of worth and value is the best and safest course.”

“I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.”

“What spirit is so empty and blind, that it cannot recognize the fact that the foot is more noble than the shoe, and skin more beautiful than the garment with which it is clothed?”

“Beauty is the purgation of superfluities.”

“How wrong are those simpletons, of whom the world is full, who look more at color than at the figures which show spirit and movement.”

“What do you despise? By this you are truly known.”

“Ancora Imparo.” (Yet I am learning.)

“Patience is eternal genius.”

“If people knew how hard I had to work to gain my mastery, it would not seem so wonderful at all.”

“I am a poor man and of little worth, who is laboring in that art that God has given me in order to extend my life as long as possible.”

“If I am more alive because love burns and chars me,
as a fire, given wood or wind, feels new elation,
it’s that he who lays me low is my salvation,
and invigorates the more, the more he scars me.”

“I live and love in God’s peculiar light.”

“My soul can find no staircase to Heaven unless it be through Earth’s loveliness.”

“The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.”

“Lord, grant that I may always desire more than I can accomplish.”

“There is no greater harm than that of time wasted.”

“Critique by creating.”
