It's very important to love your job.

Sometimes I get bored with painting.

Not like, permanently. Just sometimes, for a day or so. I mean, I guess it's not realistic to get in good painting time every single day of the week, or else I'd end up doing *nothing* else. Especially when I already do paint almost every single day of the week. For like 6-10 hours a day. Whew.

Being an artist is weird.

Being a politician is more weird. I'm glad I'm not a politician.

The funny thing is, whenever I decide to accept my non-interest in painting, and declare an "evening off," I get about 3 hours into it before I become bored and start thinking of something entertaining to do, something fun. Inevitably, I arrive at the novel idea of: "I know! I'll paint something!!!"

    Cool picture of your paint brew. Being an artist is a part of you, but being an artist does not mean it's all of you. There is a balance one have to find. Some days are easyer to find the balence.
