Enthusiasm carries more paint to the canvas than brushes or any other utensils! To have enthusiasm for life is positive, and that’s a true challenge. It means staying far from prettiness and insipid colours, and yet veering away from the depressing subjects and colours that come to mind when we listen to worldwide news events. And it’s a cop-out to simply manipulate paint all by itself – it would be more fun to work at finding a new colour for a paint supply company. A positive enthusiasm comes from having a vision of the world that would be better to live in than the world we simply adjust to every day. Artists see further and deeper than events, and enthusiasm is the vehicle they take to do that.
