Picasso called me today. Actually, he didn't. He died over 20 years ago. However, I just read that Picasso created 50,000 pieces of art. 50,000! Sometimes as many as two a day.
I also read that Diane Warren has written 80 songs that have made it into the Top Ten! Her number one pop hit is "I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing" performed by Aerosmith!
Prolific artists? You bet.
I work fast. But quality concerns me as much as speed! I hope my work has some life and emotion. It takes time, and for gosh sakes, my work is on fire half the time.
There is so much more to do. I've got hundreds of ideas. And, I want to do sculpture. I love the photography I'm working on, too I'm productive. But this is dangerous work. And high winds slow me down.
If I compare myself to Picasso. I'm going to need more gunpowder. A lot more gunpowder!
Time to crank up some Aerosmith!
