How long have you been painting?
Where do you like to paint?
On my own, my studio has everything that I need, especially coffee !
Chuck Close once said, "Inspiration is for amateurs. The rest of us just show up for work." I agree with that so much. I'm a Painter, that is my job......Artists can wander around clutching their foreheads and waiting for their muse, I work from 9 in the morning until about 8 at night, 7:7, because I love it...it's the only thing that I CAN do. Anyway if I didn't work Sally would kill me.
Do you have family pets that inspire?
Do you have a favorite indulgence while painting?
Some people will tell you, "A real painter never uses photos !" don't listen because that would mean that Degas, Manet, Hockney and hundreds of others would no longer be real artists!
