I'm not an artist...

but oil painting has become one of my favorite pastimes in the last few years. Some of my brushes once belonged to a very well-respected and prominent artist, a gift from his wife after his death. Since I got these new brushes, I find my desire to paint has been more persistent than ever. Is this because I would feel guilty not to paint when I have the brushes of someone who had such enormous talent? Or is the compulsion to paint inherent in the brushes themselves? One thing is for sure: they are way better brushes than I ever bought for myself!
