"It is necessary to work very continuously
and valiantly, and never apologetically.
In fact, to be ever on the job
so that we may find ourselves there,
brush in hand,
when the great moment does arrive."
- Robert Henri
Barely there ridgeline - lately there have been many blurry edges on that ridge.

Well, I am working "very continuously" (for 30 days anyway) ... ever-searching for that most satisfying feeling
of a well-made painting - that "great moment".
But are artists ever satisfied?
In my readings, and in my own mind ... I find,
not too often.
