Art and time

Favorite facebook response to the prior post, dealing with time and merit:

Ashley Cooper A lot of times the good art that comes quickly and suddenly is actually a result of countless hours spent on works that were less successful.

It's possible to say that any particular work is a kind of culmination (even if it is a rejection) of the hours spent making art. Often there are deep roots in the ground long before any special flowering appears. To see more of Ashley Norwood Cooper's work, go here or click on her name in the labels below.

Note: I'm on the sick list but will be back with review info tomorrow.

Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
