You rote this on-going lesson conversation beautifully. Artists and our fans both need to realize this is, and will be, a constant periodic dialogue. My daughter and I have a version of this conversation often, role swapping as needed; she is 33, and coming of a nearly 8 year hiatus from being able to draw and paint, mine has been a bit shorter than that. We're both knocking the rust off. Oh, yeah, we both work best with very different media, and styles, while sharing studio space.
