Yesterday was Sunday; I spent the whole day in my studio. I worked on a little cut out pop up card of grasshopper. When it finished I was very please with the result and then realized I had spent almost the whole day on this 5”x7” card!
This got me thinking, if someone not an artist would not understand why I would spend that kind of time to produce something without any financial return? I could have used the time to do a painting and have better chance to selling it.
I guess many artists myself included often devoted countess hours to make art out of our passion for it. In most cases, passion is more important than reason.
