Book Review: The Art of Vanitasby Matthew Innis |
I have often been asked why I decided to become an artist. (Heaven knows it is a question I have frequently asked myself.) Though I suppose there are a variety of ways to respond to the question, I suppose the primary reason is, that among my many interests, art was the one area in which I never wanted to stop improving. There were some realms in which I would not have been upset if my skills had remained the same, but in art, I just wanted – needed – to get better and better . . . . . It has been years now since making that decision, and as I get older and older, I wonder how successful I have been in my goal.
