Making art now means working in the face of uncertainty; it means living with doubt and contradiction, doing something no one much cares whether you do, and for which there may be neither audience nor reward.

    Another inspiring post Bridgette. I look forward to seeing the completed pieces though I'm loving these images (especially the top two) just as they are.

      Thank you Robyn! A lot of paintings came together over the weekend. Patience is a virtue.....and some things are worth the wait. It's hard at times not to just want to rush it all

      Thanks Lisa. It's tough. To have the sensitivity to be a creator, but to have the constitution to face the world with one's creations!
