International Plein Air Painters - June FEATURE artist

Larry Seiler

Artist Statement
Winston Churchill, also a painter, once said, "Success is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm."

As painters we can certainly see the application of this simple yet profound statement, but in the arena of arts business it is true as that sometimes life's curves in the road make the wanting of something bad enough eventually cause one to question one's own motives.  What does it mean to keep going...and to keep oneself enthused?
All artists experience bumps and bruises, and that's simply the nature of fleshing out a living, but for myself came the urging desire that painting be so much more.  More than reputation, more than reaching out to the promise and comfort of fine living,  painting has become a viable means to engage the moment, empowered to take in, see, digest and participate in a celebratory act.  A grand hoorah, a moment of praise!

It is a feeling of paying oneself straight away, acknowledging having been blessed to see more deeply.  To then find one's work a blessing to others, is a cup that runs over.
