“All works of art are commissioned in the sense that no artist can create one by a simple act of will but must wait until what he believes to be a good idea for work “comes” to him.” – W.H. Auden

    I read this and thought of Chuck Close who urges artists to just show up and start to work…no waiting for him! So while I’m not sure I agree with the sentiment of waiting for an idea before starting a work (sometimes just making a mark can lead to something), I do enjoy reading a thought that makes me reexamine an idea.
