Art is a Journey
For me, art was a long journey that began with doubt about my ability and my motives and the monetary value and moral worth of what I did. It was a road I had to travel, however.
Then I realised that I wasn't alone. Many artists walk the same road knowing there may never be money or fame. Some of us are teachers.
Many just delight in sharing the power and pleasure of creativity that turns the dross of daily life into golden moments of insight.
