10-08-15 “stick to it”

5×8″ acrylic, ink on sketchbook page

I did a few scrapes of acrylic as well as some brushwork, then penned the words of the quote with ink marker.

This quote is by a musician, not a visual artist, but I think it is applicable to most things in life, including the arts generally. I interviewed Jeffrey Agrell in the Beyond 9-11 project. At the time I interviewed him, he was a professor at the University of Iowa School of Music, as well as a composer and musician. Give a listen to his “September Elegy” (in four clips on the page).
