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.
