Making Art Is Hard


“Artists get better by sharpening their skills or by acquiring new ones; they get better by learning to work, and by learning from their work. They commit themselves to the work of their heart, and act upon that commitment. So when you ask, ‘Then why doesn’t it come easily for me?’, the answer is probably, ‘because making art is hard!’ What you end up caring about is what you do, not whether the doing came hard or easy.”
