For every online hour I spend is another hour not spent painting. I like social networking, but many of the "friends" on my FaceBook page are not really friends, but additional conversationalists to drag my attention away from my main purpose. I joined Twitter and found that I couldn't seem to learn to use it. Now I don't know how to quit Twitter. Three followers were posted as "following" my tweets, but the fact is, I have no tweets.
And I have two "yahoogroups" and a professional editing group. These often stray from the topic into controversial subjects, rather than art. If I'm going to engage my emotions, I want it to be about art!
Let's face it: Life is short, art is long.
