Love can be a real boost to productivity, if there is someone in your life who really wants to see you paint and pushes for it.

The lack of love can another motivation to do artwork, because you are trying to make a reason you were born.


The most difficult type of love from others is from those who do not see art has to bepart of your regular routine. They may want your presence to the exclusion of your art. It is even more difficult if they do not really care for your pictures.


Only in the beginning of my sales did I confuse enthusiasm from customers as love. Now I have long-time customers who have grown into people I love and who love me, but that had more to do with my personal life.
