Art is hard

Pointless legitimacy: "Art is Hard", 2016, 11"x14", spray paint on paper.

This is not a complaint. Merely and acknowledgment on a Monday. Also I wanted to smell paint while I was working on a client project.

This image popped in my head the other day as something I wanted to say to someone, after hearing them talk about a struggle with a new set of pieces they were working on. I literally pictured it as tossed-off spray paint on paper or a wall. Deliberately non-art, as most blunt communication is.

I made this today, before I started work. One of the best things about a dedicated workspace is the narrowing of time between idea and execution. Even if it's a silly mental image you need to get out of your brain, so you can move on with your day.
