The craft of painting – what is it?

Well it has many aspects to it not the least of which are having courage and being brave.
Painting, painting, – and then there was more. Well, one likes to think so anyway.
I started back at John Morris’ class this week. One has to challenge ones-self you know.

And it is – challenging to throw yourself into a class where there is no quarter given – really – if that’s what you ask for – which I do. Still, you have to be prepared to not be precious about what you are producing or bringing along for a critique.
Do you have a teacher like that? If you don’t, you need to get one. If you really want to get serious about the business of art – you need to get over yourself enough to accept critical help, sign posts and pointers along the way.
