Getting Everyone Out...

I came upon this today in a book review:

"When you start working, everybody is in your studio--your friends, enemies, the art world and, above all, your own ideas--all are there.  But as you continue painting, they start leaving, one by one, and you are left completely alone.  Then, if you're lucky, even you leave."

As good a description as any I've ever read what it is like to be in a creative mode.



  1. excellent quote Judy - may have to print it off and stick it up in my studio

  2. That is pretty darn perfect quote all right. For me, it's getting me out the way that is usually the problem!

    I'm with you's going on the wall right along with "Life is filled with great opportunities brilliantly disguised as impossible situations"
