@painter8929 When I read this, I thought of your question:"One works (paints) because I suppose it is the most interesting thing
one knows how to do. The days one works (paints) are the best days. On
the other days one is hurrying through the other things one imagines one
has to do to keep one's life going. You get the garden planted. You get
the roof fixed. You take the dog to the vet. You spend a day with a
friend. You learn to make a new kind of bread. You hunt up photographs
for someone who thinks he needs them. You certainly have to do the
shopping. You may even enjoy doing such things. You think they have to
be done. You even think you have to have some visitors or take a trip to
keep from getting queer living alone...(). But always, you are hurrying
through these things with a certain amount of aggravation so that you
can get at the painting again because that is the high spot - in a way
it is what you do all the other things for...The painting is like a
thread that runs through all the reasons for all the other things that
make one's life."
But there are worse obsessions. It's gotta be better than booze, drugs, gambling or porn addiction, right?
