Getting older, getting tired each day at work...I started getting home each day and sitting in front of the TV. By bedtime, I would lament that nothing important had been accomplished during the evening, and feeling a bit like a failure. Stephen DeStaebler said, "Artists don't get down to work until the pain of working is exceeded by the pain of not working." Needless to say, the pain of being worthless motivated me to get started. Walt even drew this picture one evening to serve as my "intervention" and remind me of my artistic goals.
