here's a link to the Australian Brett Whitelely's advice to the aspiring artist-"aim at virtually whatever is in front of you...
and then one day you'll see something that you have truly never seen before
and that is the beginning of yourself
& that heralds the beginning of difficult pleasure."http://aso.gov.au/titles/documentaries/difficult-pleasure/clip3/(NB Difficult pleasure is how Brett described painting, or creating art: Art is an argument between what a thing looks like and what it means.)
These words have helped me find my way through the long dark nights many many times in the past 27 years!
