You know, sometimes I forget just WHY I paint all the time. Sometimes I start thinking "Why am I painting these little trinkets ALL the time?! What for?!"
And then I was reminded yesterday by someone who was looking at all the little paintings and doodles I've done. He said "You know, sometimes I forget that there is just JOY in art."
I think that pretty much explains it. That is the real reason I do it.
