I have started re-reading Life with Picasso by Francoise Gilot and Carlton Lake, having recently experienced the Picasso exhibition in Toronto.  All the works were  from his private collection.

Francoise compares her life as an artist while living with Picasso to the lives of her friends,

I saw that even though they weren’t widely known, most of them, they had sent off arrows into the future, and the efforts they were making gave real meaning to their lives. (1

My efforts as an artist is what gives my life form and purpose.

What a lovely idea that the work might become an arrow into the future.  I know within the studio the work does often take flight in directions unanticipated.  This fills me with a quiet joy.  I think of it as grace.
