Why an artist needs to go to art shows

I was fortunate enough to go to a much coveted art exhibit today by one of my favorite local artists, Jeffery T. Larson. What a feast for the eyes! hadn't seen one of his shows in years. The web show is awesome, but nothing like seeing art in life! Having seen what can be done with paint has really charged me up to paint more and better. So, if you are an artist or love to look at art, get yourself to an exhibit!
