I found this Andrew Wyeth quote in one of his books many years ago and it resonated with me as it seemed to apply to me in some way. "In art, as in life, artists can be awkward and difficult. They can be maddeningly secretive,so much so, that at times they become the sole worshippers in their own cult "
For many years ,my partner Mary has supported my insularity and introspection and has facilitated the thousands of hours that I have spent selfishly painting in my own world... I love her and thank her for everything ..
