Gull At Sunset on EBay:

I have found that one must decide to be a painter more than an artist. This doesn’t mean you can’t do sculpture, mathematics, printmaking, or gymnastics. But a painter is a painter before all else. One must decide to give up food before brushes. This choice must be made before your work is of any significance. The simple fact of choosing a tube of paint vs. bread is the most sublime choice a painter can make. It means that one’s physical death is not as severe as a spiritual one.
