October Morning in Kingston, Washington

There are times in our lives when we wonder about our art. Should I be an artist and try to sell my art, or should I just enjoy the everyday wonders of retirement and paint and sketch when I want to do it.

Last week I painted three days with three different groups of friends and think I must have hit a plateau, as my back sent me to the chiropractor, and none of my paintings were worth sharing.

So many blogs talk about being inspired by friends and nature, but right now most of my friends are artists. we talk about doing art for the beauty of art or for the merchandization of art for the sale.

The one think in life I never want to be is a “Thomas Kincaid” of art. He started out as a fine artist, and gave up his work for the joy of making money. Where do you draw the line in art?
