“The best painters have arrived at their art after long search and struggle, trial and error, and considerable thought and introspection----- and, incidentally after having painted hundreds of pictures.”
I have been struggling lately to continue doing any art. This is a familiar struggle, I revisit it at least once a year! Usually it involves, as it currently does, a questioning of meaning. For example, 'what is meaningful about art?, why create it?' All important questions to ask myself I find. I know enough to not let any of this struggle stop me from continuing to draw. I also know that eventually I will get back to experiencing that I do art simply and totally for the love of art.....not to get love. I do art for the happiness and discipline it brings. For the continued heart opening that comes with persistence.
