Why Do You Do Art?

I was recently asked the question 'Why do you do Art?'. You'd think after forty plus years of doing art I'd know the answer to this question but I actually had to stop and think about it. Anywhere but here , by TET, July 2004 "The art that I'm most proud of is work where I've set out to communicate an idea..." I'm aware many people create their art as a relaxation or escape from stress.

Its angle can be adjusted so that from your vantage point it looks like the tip of  your finger is coming to a point. Softnib concept sketch.  You simply move the pointer around and the line is drawn from the point of the stylus instead of somewhere under your finger, where you can't see it.  Obviously I haven't worked out all the details - such  as how the poin
