“Yes, I’ve made a great deal of dough from my fiction, but I never set a single word down on paper with the thought of being paid for it … I have written because it fulfilled me … I did it for the buzz. I did it for the pure joy of the thing. And if you can do it for joy, you can do it forever.”
I’ve spent months painting the floors where I live, and I often chuckle and say, “I spent X-amount of time on a painting I can never sell!” That’s OK, because working out the design, the correct proportions and building layers of colors are all important challenges, and I learn what works and what does not work.
The floor is not finished due to technical difficulties! Will share those details later, as it’s raining pretty hard*, and I need to get home!
*We received our first true ground-soaking rain this afternoon, and surprise surprise, we lost power!!! I am in town to upload these images and publish this Timeout for Art. Will be off line until tomorrow night.
Thanks everyone for your support! Z
