Finally, yesterday I spent a good portion of the day catching up on grouting. 

My hands and fingernails are the proof.  Discolored and sore. 

See how I suffer for my art. 


Where did the term suffering for your art come from anyways?

Seems Edvard Munch had something to say about the subject:

“For as long as I can remember I have suffered from a deep feeling of anxiety which I have tried to express in my art. Without anxiety and illness I should have been like a ship without a rudder.”  -Edvard Munch

I much prefer my aching hands to his anxiety and illnesses.  Thankfully I have no compulsion like Munch to concentrate on fear and anxiety.    

But don’t you agree that in any “making” adventure….yes even these photo frames, there is a certain amount of anxiety.   With these frames, mine was mostly…does this tile look good with these tiles?  Such stress!

There is always something to learn.
