What's the Point?

This is a question every artist has asked themselves; maybe it haunts them regularly
or just at low points. You are in your studio alone, looking at all this work, thinking
"What's the point? No one is going to buy this work. What am I going to do with it all? "

When it is highly personal work that question is even more vexing. Sometimes you are
deep into a series, digging away at what even you don't know. There is no roadmap for the
emotions that come up and out of you, out of a deep place." How can someone else understand
this if I don't? I don't know. I just know it calls me and so I believe there will be answers to the questions. That there is a point.
