CONVERSATION IN THE PUB WITH A FELLOW ARTIST ON SUNDAY

"How can you possibly sell large canvassed paintings that take you so many hours and days to complete for €300?" he asks.
"That's prostituting your work."

"PROSTITUTING MY WORK? You said that to me last year, I remember. How many paintings have you sold? Huh? None. How can YOU hoard your paintings like you do and refuse to even see if you can sell them. YOU'RE JUST MASTURBATING YOURS." I laugh

"So I'm a prostitute and you're a masturbater. Tell you what, I think we should swap a painting for a painting." I add

"No way. One day I'm probably going to explode." he laughs.
