"Art is where you find it" and "art is everywhere" are just two common quotes that may or may not be attributable to any one individual. However this photo is proof personified that great works cannot be defined by who produced them or by whether or not they hang in the Louvre, but by the emotions they garner within us.
Recently, I found myself traveling down Campbell Lane and stopping in for an empowerment session as I have at Donald and Steve Campbell's Body Shop many times before. Each time I stop in, I am totally amazed at the plethora of academic, amusing, and artsy subjects this venue can generate.
For those of you who don't know Donald and Steve, they are father and son auto rebuilders and are, according to most, at the top of the quality and quantity heap. You may or may not have given it any thought but to take an automobile that has been bent, banged, and bruised in an accident and then pull, push, and pry those damaged pieces, parts, and portions back into a better than new vehicle requires an intensely artistic mind.
Understanding then that Donald and Steve are great artists on purpose; on this one particular trip, I was not at all surprised to stumble upon how artistic they are by accident. The creative spirit will manifest itself in the subconscious as well as the conscious. This scene on the window just above their paint stirring table is in a state of continuous, creative change. Time softens some of the hues and edges while new hues and edges are being fashioned.
