Pablo Picasso once said " When I paint my object is to show what I have found and not what I am looking for."
I think it's that distance between where we start and where we end up that is the most important, not to say that the outcome isn't important, but that middle part is the genius behind where we end up. I think all artist start with an intention and want, with all their hearts desire, to share that.
Sometimes, if we are lucky, get to share what we were looking for...sometimes we are only able to share what we find!
Either way the middle part is my favorite!
