naturally, it occurs to me that being an artist is not "easy." there are countless forces that fight against the progress of the artist on a path towards "success." not that this is different from other professions in general, but the specifics are surely different. i'm likely not up to the task of explaining the age old inside story of the artists' Struggle. anyways, it has been documented to death. as a breath of fresh air, this artist makes it look easy for the most part. though his work is marked with the signs of a laborious hand, and his eyes show the wear of seeing more than most, he seems to glide through his experience on the strength of the Spirit.
