etc.


An artist must never be a prisoner. Prisoner? An artist should never be a prisoner of himself, prisoner of style, prisoner of reputation, prisoner of success, etc. -Henri Matisse

I agree 100%... Though it has caused a bit of hardship along the way, this philosophy soothes my soul and leads me in the right directions... never stagnant. I can tell it's your philosophy as well... how else could you be such a wellspring of delight, Debra!?
Thanks for contributing such pleasures to my life...

I so agree with this! Artistry is perhaps one of the only TRUE freedoms that we have. And we should only be limited by our own imaginations.

Hi Di! That sign is going up for sale in my shop.:)

David, Are you for real? (lol) you're so darn nice! You're right, it is my philosophy, indeed. And thank you for your really, really nice comments. hugs

Girl, I adore him too! :)xox

ennui, it is so true. xox

Anthony, I believe this too, it is one thing no one can take away from us. And being creative, it's the one thing where we can be ourselves and not have to care about being accepted by anyone else. It is very therapeutic! xox

Thanks all of you for the sweet comments. Hope everyone is having a wonderful week!
