Milton Resnick, painting in action.

I discovered this tonight on public TV. Resnick is superb in his evaluation of what makes a painter tick.

‘The first five minutes are the best, after that you’re in trouble’.

‘Artists have ups and downs. If you’re good, you’re gonna go down. And some artists can’t take it. They begin to develop a technique to get out of that hole. Then they’re done. They never go any further.’

‘I don’t think it’s my painting anymore….after it’s finished.’

You can find Part 1 in youtube.
