You Just Have to Paint

Sometimes, you just  have to paint.  It's important to reflect on how to paint, what to  paint, why to paint or if to paint.  But mostly, it's just important to decide to paint.  No matter your mood, your philosophy, your need for money, your need for recognition..... If you don't have the fire in your belly to paint, you still have to paint because it's just what you do.  Painting defines you, gives you direction, makes you focused, and reminds you of who you are and why you get up in the morning.  I love the feel of the brush in my hand, the glide of the brush across the paper, and the thoughts in my head while I paint.  And that's why I just have to paint.
