the way an artist's expression extends over
every moment he or she 'creates'."

From the foreword by Mark Kane -
"Thank goodness for artists. They have to make art. They have to remake the world around them. Best of all (if you're a gardener), when artists catch the gardening bug, nothing they do is ordinary."
