For some, struggle and difficulty is the very root of creativity and expression. It takes a lot of patients and passion to produce art that is successful and that we are proud of. It may take many attempts before we get there. We should not shy away from difficulty because it is a part of everyday. Art can allow us to channel life's difficulties in a positive way and make us strive to create something us worth while.

I agree on Aloisio - It's a nervous life, uncertain and full of contradictions. But no escape from real life. There is only one reality.

Allan talks about the fact that it is incredibly difficult to be an artist because there is no end, but isn't that true for any calling? I love that he points out the problem that America generally shys away from difficulty, so maybe we should also stop shying away from finishes or ends too, whether it be art or not.

it really doesn't take SOMETHING to be an artist. all you have to do is express yourself, you draw what you can't express in words. it's a great feeling afterwards, when you have expressed yourself. anyone can do it, all you have to do is want it. if you really give it a shot, you can accomplish it.

I think what it takes to be an artist is an intense need to take the thoughts out of your head and express them either for the purpose of sharing them with the world or getting rid of them so that they no longer fill your mind.

What does it take to be an artist? I think it takes a tremendous amount of courage. True artists are those who rupture the fabric of the everyday, and who expand reality beyond the practical and the necessary and the known. Doing this is not easy. Thank you, Allan, and thank you to all the artists. The world needs you.

We all struggle at times with our chosen crafts/callings/passions/professions. Even the things we love to do require work. I know when I was younger I was under the impression that if I really was following my calling, my "work" would always be easy. I think in some ways this line of thinking caused me to stop doing or put aside some of the things I enjoyed, just because they started to feel like work. Now that I'm a little older, I hope I'm starting to figure out that everything requires a little elbow grease now and then, even the artsy stuff. It's the work of art.
