I suspect teaching art is a crap shoot. What I always loved were the visual images of others work. The schools pushed you to have your portfolio together and that was viewed as a big deal. At RISD, Students were taught to draw their projects.

I spent decades polishing Schott to precision levels. At one point an article showed up with this Dutch snot who the article said "Liked to amuse himself gluing random pieces of the material together.

Actually, art is hard work. You can go in the studio in the morning, come out at night and have nothing. There was this guy in New York doing not dissimilar stuff, . Terrible stuff, selling well.

I look back and harbor no regrets. I've mainly been criticized for being too direct in what I think. maybe, but I won't stop. Do remember that I didn't go to art school.
