The process of making art can be both profound and at times profoundly frustrating—much like parenting.
“As a parent, I can’t get everything right, and the things that I don’t get right may add color to my son’s life and experience in ways that are productive and good.”
“Maybe it’s because of the relationship to the process of creating art, but [artists] seem able to give their children the time to create themselves, and develop.”
“The way that I view the world has a lot to do with the way I grew up talking about art, because art has so many connections to the world and has so much to do with people processing the world.”
