|Greg Mason Burns||
Ever had a bad day as an artist? Ever wondered where the next commission will come from? The next sale? The next print sale? Ever wonder if it's worth sticking with it and heading back out to the "real" world? I've been on both sides, and being an artist is easily the best thing for me. I know this in my heart. But here's the thing, it's not always easy to do it. One needs to remember why one is doing it, and sometimes it's easy to forget. I had one of those days recently, and I was thankful to receive this cartoon by Bill Watterson as a reminder to keep forging ahead.
I was recently interviewed by the Cultura segment on eParaná, which is one of the TV stations in the state of Paraná here in Brasil. I'm featured in the first three minutes after the intro.
Here is the link: Greg Mason Burns TV Interview with eParaná.
I tried to embed the video but couldn't so you'll have to go to the link instead.
In any case, thanks for watching.

Quero agradecer a todos aqueles que participaram da minha mais recente exposição de pinturas de natureza morta. Fiquei muito feliz em ver aqueles que vieram, e eu aprecio o apoio que vocês deram. Um agradecimento especial a Arlete e Genésio.
A exposição vai até o final de agosto. Hacienda está aberto de segunda a sexta-feira, das 12h as 22h (ou mais tarde).
