#1. How long DOES it take for you to paint a painting?
Whistler said when asked how long it took to do "Nocturne in Blue and Gold", he stated It has taken me a lifetime to get to where I can even begin to do this."
Found on Art Forum where many responded to this question and the answers varied quite a bit.
Short Answer: It takes as long as it takes.
Three to four sessions of two to three hours.
Fifteen to Twenty hours.
After two to four hours, I end up doodling or throwing away.
#2. What Ever inspired you to paint this painting?
After gathering several answers, the ones below are my favorite.
Inspiration is for amateurs-the rest of us just show up and get to work.-Chuck Close
Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working.- Picasso
All in all, there are dozens of answers to just these two questions we are dying to ask artists that are as unique as the artist's work itself.
