Why Do We Need a Why?

Can artists just make art for the enjoyment they get from it as an activity? And, can viewers look at art purely for enjoyment without needing reasons for its existence?

I said to some fellow artists this week that I need a helper, not to do bits of painting or other things, but to stand beside me and snatch my tools away at the most opportune moment in a painting’s development.

Art is a Fickle Business

As I pondered, my mind went off on a tangent, automatically brainstorming, the implications and possibilities, as well as  how to resolve this painting?

“Out There” is a broad theme which leaves the options wide open.  What will develop as I find my way around the ideas?

Are they done or not?  I have to remind myself that not everything can be “exciting”, but they still might be good enough to send out into the world.
