Christian Mihai posted ‘Art and Obsession’ yesterday. It reads beautifully and appropriate for artists trying to paint a masterpiece with oils or words to hear the word O B S E S S I O N. Think about the word as 2014 unfolds. When you are stuck in your art remember the word obsession. 2014 will be the year you accomplish the art you are capable of doing.
Remember, life is short; art is long. Good luck to you in 2014.
