I’ve been called many names like perfectionist, difficult and obsessive. I think it takes obsession, takes searching for the details for any artist to be good.
I’ve never really had a hobby, unless you count art, which the IRS once told me I had to declare as a hobby since I hadn’t made money with it.

No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did, he would cease to be an artist.
No heirloom of humankind captures the past as do art and language.
