The function of art
Today I was having coffee with an artist friend and had brought with me a recent portrait I had worked on. He thought it was wonderful and had great things to say about it, which was very nice. However, he then looked sad and said that it almost disheartened him as he was working on a couple of portraits and they came nowhere near this portrait. I was dismayed. The function of good art should be to increase the joy of creating, not stifle it.
