Have to say am trying very hard to create a school of thought that allows certain types of art not to hurt the artist in their lives outside their art (if outside is poss).
I think the requirement that we suffer for our art is curious: must we suffer in our family or biz? I don’t think so.
So why must art necessarily be a painful process for its creator? It can be, and it may, indeed, for some be like this. But for myself I want to reserve the right to be an artist, and also happily so. No?
