I think you have to teach kids to work, and you can only teach them to work if you work... I can't delegate jobs if I'm not doing it.
~ Ruth Asawa (1926-2013). She had six kids, by the way.
I got interested in her because she'd been at Black Mountain. Best known for her coiled wire sculptures, I fell in love with this painting at a show of her work I went to a day or two ago at the David Zwirner gallery on West 20th Street. You have to look closely to see the little scribbles in the back of the chair. Somehow that's what makes this great.
