Red Oak Leaf --- sold

Its that time of year when it is very easy to be overwhelmed by... not exactly sadness but a bittersweet feeling that comes with the wind and the crickets and the wafting leaves.   Reading a book called Art and Fear, it has some great things to say about the creative process.  Two quotes I like:
"Writing (painting) is easy:  all you do is sit staring at a blank sheet of paper until the drops of blood form on your forehead."   --Gene Fowler

"Life is short, art long, opportunity fleeting, experience treacherous, judgement difficult."
