All art is autobiographical. The pearl is the oyster's autobiography (Federico Fellini). Work out your own salvation. Do not depend on others.(Buddha) You are what you settle for. You are ONLY as much as you settle for.(Janis Joplin 1943-1970) Use the talents you possess, for the woods would be a very silent place if no birds sang except the best.(Henry van Dyke, poet 1852-1933) "I must be willing to give up what I am in order to become what I will be." (Albert Einstein)

Slowly but surely
The painting below has been on my easel for months and occasionally I've dabbed a bit of paint on it. So this morning's onslaught, which actually started in the wee small hours, is a determined effort to get it finished. I put the small moons in this morning and really now it's a case of tidying up the background, increasing the depth in the painting, and modifying the blue bottom left, and then consigning it to the wall!
