Why art?One of the assumptions people make about being an artist is that it's fun. "Oh that must be so much fun!" Then usually follows the statement about their inability to add to the collection of stick-figures in the world.
Making art can be fun... sometimes. But to bring something into the world, to put a piece of yourself, your soul, out there to stand on it's own, bare, naked before the eyes of others to judge and dissect isn't always easy or fun.
So the question is: Why do we do it? Why do we make art?
