Years ago my parents and I took a trip to Paris in celebration of my newly-minted MFA degree - a once-in-a-lifetime trip which I will always treasure in my heart. Among the many memories, our visit to the Musee Picasso stands out for the epiphany I had there regarding art making.

As we wandered through the extensive collection of the Great Man's work, I realized that it didn't matter if my work never sold or received any public recognition at all, but rather that the MAKING was the thing. The joy of creating is enough. Huzzah! Epiphany!

Grrl + Dog has a brilliant post this week on the same topic. Ever had a maker's epiphany? I would love to hear about it. Happy making, all!
