The Troublemaker


When the artist is alive in any person, whatever his kind of work may be, he becomes an inventive, searching, daring, self-expressive creature. He becomes interesting to other people. He disturbs, upsets, enlightens, and opens ways for a better understanding. Where those who are not artists are trying to close the book, he opens it and shows there are still more pages possible.
Robert Henri, The Art Spirit


Well that explains why I've irritated people all my life...

It sounds like me too! I have irritated many.

I'll bet that you've only irritated those who don't like the status quo being upset. And if that's the case, I'd suggest that we all go on irritating people as long as we can!

Amen to that, Rhonda!
