"There’s no diploma in the world that declares you as an artist—it’s not like becoming a doctor. You can declare yourself an artist and then figure out how to be an artist." —Kara Walker

In a new episode from the ART21 Exclusive series, artist Kara Walker reflects on her early success and offers advice to the next generation of artists, shown again recent work at Sikkema Jenkins & Co. and the 2014 Frieze Art Fair.

Everybody needs to stop what they’re doing and look at how adorable these dogs are.

Hmm, guess we can mark watermelon off the list of treats for Daisy.

6 Creatures - [Kelpie]
Down in the valley, close to where he lived, there was a large deep loch, and in the loch, so the country folk said, there dwelt a water kelpie. Now water kelpies, as all the world knows, are cruel and malicious spirits, who love nothing better than to lure mortals to destruction. And this is how they set about it:
They take the form of a beautiful horse, and come out of the water, all saddled and bridled, as if ready to be mounted; then they graze quietly by the side of the road, until some luckless creature is tempted to get on their back. Then they plunge with him into the water,and he is no more seen.



silverwitch:- Now how else are they to get mates?  ;  ) 


I remember last summer I was riding my friend’s horse who was a big white draft cross. We were just tooling around the pasture bareback when I decided to let him cool off in the pond. I was planning on just going in up to his knees, but as soon as he saw I was aiming him for the water, he took the bit and barged all the way to the middle of the pond. It scared the crap out of me and took me completely off guard; I was still wearing my boots and breeches and everything. 
That’s how we learned Mouse could swim. And that Kelpies are real.

Great ride tonight. She’s really coming along. We’re having our first lesson with the German trainer who comes up once a week on Wednesday. I’m excited to see what he thinks of her!

That is an ex-parrot.

He has ceased to be.

He has expired and gone to meet his maker

He’s probably pining for the fjords

No, no… he’s stunned

He’s pushing daisies! He’s rung down the curtain and joined the choir invisible!
