Alonzo Davis lets us pick his brain about the Open Studio Tour:
"Make time for art. There are a thousand other things happening in your life, but art is important to you, so make time for it."

"Keep working through whatever comes. Your biggest enemy is fear."
"Always be true to your own vision and value your intrinsic individuality."
"The art. I have to make art. That is what drives me."

"Making art engages all of my senses. It gives me a place in the universe and a feeling of belonging unlike any I have ever known."

"Give yourself time to find direction in your art while developing a thick skin layered with perseverance and tolerance."
"Take art classes even though you don't consider yourself an artist, or even have any skills."
"...Art making is a form of self flagellation."
