Definition of Artist

When do you know that you have truly become an artist? I think those moments come frequently, and all we have to do is pay attention.

I had one of these "Ahah!" moments yesterday when I rushed into the kitchen, alerted by a strange odor and the dinner bell....which, in my case, is an obnoxious screeching smoke alarm. This is what I saw! I didn't think, "oh, what a mess!" Oh, no.....I thought "How beautiful!" and rushed to get my camera. (Can't explain the urgency I felt, because where was the pot going to go?) Who but an artist could appreciate such beautiful color? And, also, how can I reproduce this on paper? I may have to go with metal. Beet juice and fire! the pot cleanable? Is the stove cleanable? How much does it matter?
