The most beautiful moments.

The most beautiful moments in art and literature are those when you discover a private thought; an intensely personal part of yourself that you had thought unique to you, exactly reflected in the words or lines of someone else. They reach across the eons and spaces to touch you, hold your hand and speak to you; and unloved, unembraced and abandoned as you are, you don't feel so alone.

What's the Difference?

There is a difference between being a painter and being an artist.
I am one, but not sure of whether I am the other.
I am not sure what it takes to be considered an artist.
I know that a painting is not necessarily art.
I have seen enough work that is technically fine, but says nothing.
Sentimentality does not equal art.
Is the stuff I paint art?  Maybe not.
Does it matter?
Not to me.
