My life as an Artist is analogous to that of a Chef. The Chef makes beautiful, intricately designed, tasty dishes and sends them away for others to enjoy. Their art stimulates people's senses and evokes a response, but the Chef is rarely afforded the opportunity to encounter that response, nor do they enjoy their own work in the same way as their patrons. They do it because they are in love with the process.
Additionally, most of the Chefs that I have encountered are ego-centric perfectionists. Yup, Artists are like Chefs.
