Rose Studies

I was watching an interview with an artist who was having a show at The Whitney (sorry, can't remember his name) who said very humbly that he was never sure about the quality of his work. Artists just have to live with these concerns. I believe it requires faith in ourselves to keep going. Here he was with a show at The Whitney and still worried about his work!! Not only do we have to face blank canvases we have to deal with uncertainties as a normal mode of working.
We are a strange and wonderful group!
"Rose Study" and " Rose and Bud" 3x4 inches, watercolor on board

This is so true! Always hoping that the next painting will be the best ever can sometimes leave you feeling like the last one didn't measure up!
Just wanted you to know I love your work and your book!!
