muser – noun
Do you have one? A muser that is. I do.
Mine is a hearty soul who has suffered and journeyed with me through my art’s metamorphosis over the last 28 years. She has…
…been there when the art has worked and when it has failed
…asked hard, drive you batty questions about the art
…been both patient and impatient with my art
…pushed, pulled and prodded me as often as needed about my art
…cheered me on and provided invaluable encouragement about my art
And last Friday night, when I was consumed on a painting, she has forgiven me when I forgot to cook dinner. In fact, this picture was taken in the midst of that painting’s creation.
If you don’t have a muser, I would humbly suggest you work towards establishing one. You don’t want to walk this artist’s journey alone. It’s way more fun to share the journey.
