Elizabeth Spiers: The Art of George W. Bush and the Importance of Play.
"There are plenty of reasons to engage in creative activity that has no possibility of being professionalized and won't receive external validation. We paint because it’s therapeutic. We paint because it gives us new perspectives on the world around us. We paint because the act of creating is just as important as the creation. We paint because, god forbid, it’s fun, which is its own justification."
And this is why I sketch a little, just about every day.
