Funny. I’ve thought a lot about this as well and arrived at the same conclusion (perhaps envy)…

Well, yes, I’ll admit I’m also biased! My friend the artist read my article and enjoyed it, but pointed out that all of the work she puts into a painting may only be looked at for a few moments in time, whereas writing demands attention for longer. Imagine labouring on a picture for months and then someone giving it only a cursory glance…the equivalent of watching someone scan the back of a book and replace it on the shelf, I suppose. Thank you for commenting, Sakka.
