Art in process

It is more pleasant for the artist to paint then to have finished painting.

When one is busy and absorbed in ones work. The very absorption offers great delight.  But when one has withdrawn ones hand from the completed master piece. The pleasure is not so keen.

Henceforth it is the fruit of his art that he enjoys. One who is deserved to enjoy the fruit of his art is the one who enjoyed the process of its creation.
