    May all sentient beings have happiness and the causes of happiness; may we be free from suffering and the causes of suffering; may we never be separated from the great happiness that knows no suffering; may we abide in equanimity, free from attachment, aversion and ignorance. those are the four immeasurables… Heidi Pollard

    AB: I have to ask you about humor because we’re both kind of goofy. Some of your paintings are very goofy; some are very serious; sometimes it’s what you’ve titled them. Like Boot: ‘boot’ just makes Boot even goofier.

    HP: There’s an aspect of humor that’s all about the pleasure of silliness. A title can point out that it’s ok to laugh, that, in fact, it is funny. Or it’s serious in a way that includes laughter, you know? It’s very human.

  • ****And ONE Immeasurable fact… it was fun to meet Heidi Pollard whose works I admire and enjoy on my last ski trip to Taos.
