How does Art Happen?

Currently in the evenings I am working on my first painting commission, and it has been much more enjoyable than I could've expected or hoped. This quote by french author André Gide strikes me as so true. UPDATE - September 2014: the art is completed, and the 4' x 4' canvas successfully delivered to a happy customer! 

Art is a collaboration between God and the artist, and the less the artist does the better.  – André Gide
