Don Haggerty    Figurative Painting        Gallery VI


In my work as an artist, I've come to see that making art and making excuses are pretty much the same thing.  They are for me, anyway.

I find myself making excuses all the time.  I make up almost any excuse I can to put color on a canvas, to put lines on paper, to drag an oil bar across a freshly gessoed board, to develop a form bathed in light, to create something for no other reason than that I'm somehow beckoned to do so.

You see...nothing but excuses.  I like good excuses!
