I’ve often wondered what this obsession is that people have with time. It seems that the amount of monetary reward is linked to the length (time) of sustained effort that artists put into creating their work. I don’t agree.
It’s not how long it takes to create a piece of art, but how successful the artwork is.
Today’s featured drawing Cold Tea (110 x 80 cm), was my entry for this year’s Glover Art Prize. It took me months to do. It was painstaking work, but I persevered until it was completed. Although the drawing wasn’t selected for the exhibition I was pleased with what I had achieved.
We should appreciate the product, the process in this case is secondary.
