Why make art?
|Mary Kemp . The Cat and the Plum Tree.|
Because it makes sense of the world.
Because it improves the world.
Because it makes you a better person.
Because you get paid for it.
Because it feeds your family.
Because it makes everything else worthwhile.
Because you like it.
So it was Sunday afternoon and I sat in the garden with a cup of tea . I started drawing the plum tree, then the cat plonked herself down at the base of the tree so I squeezed her in at the bottom, what the hell.
So why do I sketch?
I NEED THE PRACTICE.
A ballet dancer does exercises, an artist sketches.
