New quote for my Inspiration page

“The advice I like to give young artists, or really anybody who’ll listen to me, is not to wait around for inspiration. Inspiration is for amateurs; the rest of us just show up & get to work. If you wait around for the clouds to part & a bolt of lightning to strike you in the brain, you are not going to make an awful lot of work. All the best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the work itself. Things occur to you.”
~ Chuck Close
I've posted this onto my Inspiration page to keep this - long neglected, so a new resolution is to try and add to it when I read something good and worth holding onto - more often than once every three years at any rate!

I'd like to think this is true - lightning happens but it's work that pays off. Even the aimless making of jewelry elements can evolve into a design :)
