Do what’s good for you or ….
Coming out of Target, the rain has stopped and I’m walking to the car. The thought pops in – “I need to write.” Interesting. The thought “I need to paint” or “I need to draw” has never popped in as far as I can remember. I’ve always considered myself primarily a visual artist, a failed one, but a visual artist nonetheless. The internet is strewn with people proclaiming themselves to be writers.
I write more than I paint. I produce visual work sporadically but when I do it is good, if i do say so myself. My writing leans to the mediocre but again, I write more than I paint. I understand what’s good and bad in visual composition. I don’t have that same instinct with the written word. I just need to write…..
Apparently I also have a need for labels.
