Painting in watercolor is like walking a tight-rope; one must achieve a perfect balance between what the paint wants to do and what the artist wants to do, or all is lost.
Mary C. Taylor, Watercolor Bold and Free
This quote is exactly how I feel about painting with watercolor.  I had previously thought that painting should be a relaxing hobby, but it is not.  I find that I have a very intense focus the entire time I am painting.  The house could be burning down and I wouldn't notice.

Oh boy... I'm going in! I am glad for your quotes, comments and advice as it is an activity which sort of necessitates a support group ;)
