Scott 's comment on Intuition

Youve touched on the age old problem. Ann hit it it right on the head.
"There is such a difference between creating and producing"....
Most of us return to our easels to re-capture that great feeling we get when we create something we are proud of. But, as working artists, we are impelled to produce work... to make our livings, or at least, justify our obsession.
I'm always tickled by the two very obviously different mind sets of artists (often TWO mindSETS in the SAME mind). Balancing between being a creative artist, and a successful selling, or "producing" artist is the Conundrum of our being.

Lucky and skilled is the artist who can repeatedly produce work that both he and his patrons are proud of....

Just keep on singing your song.... :-)
