Hi Larry,

This takes us back a few weeks to the "what is art?"question??? Is art art
because it is intended to be art by its creator?

Personally, I have several sketches in my visual diaries that may or may not
be seen or appreciated by others. Some may become 3d sculptures in glass or
pottery. I like them and I enjoy them and may decide one day to share them
with others, but will I .....?

Can an artwork be created for any other reason?

Does, or can, an artist create something solely for her/himself, with no
intention of ever sharing it with others to elicit a response from those
around her/him?

Is artwork always outward directed?
