"Solitude" --- SOLD
I heard this great quote by Steve Martin the other day. He said: "Consistent work enhanced my act. I learned a lesson: it was easy to be great. Every entertainer has a night when everything is clicking. These nights are accidental and statistical: like lucky cards in poker, you can count on them occurring over time. What was hard was to be good, consistently good, night after night, no matter what the circumstances." Don't we (artists) all strive to paint that perfect painting? Well this daily painting thing has convinced me that it's not about that one - it's about all the others - it's about the process and the life as an artist. The experience. Going into our studios day after day and doing what we love - but doing it.
