on being a happy artist

Have to say am trying very hard to create a school of thought that allows certain types of art not to hurt the artist in their lives outside their art (if outside is poss).

I think the requirement that we suffer for our art is curious: must we suffer in our family or biz?  I don’t think so.

So why must art necessarily be a painful process for its creator?  It can be, and it may, indeed, for some be like this.  But for myself I want to reserve the right to be an artist, and also happily so.  No?
