"Very often audacity, not talent, makes one person an artist and another a shadow artist --
hiding in the shadows, afraid to step out and expose the dream to the light,
fearful that it will disintegrate to the touch."
Julia Cameron, The Artist's Way
Because I'm pretty new at this artist thing, and because I've spent most of my life focused on a career in music, a lot of my friends have said to me, "Oh! I didn't know you could paint!"
Well, neither did I. But I did it anyway. Go. Paint anyway.
