Artists Among Us: Ten Telltale Signs

1) They often have paint on their shoes.
2) They carry their work about with them in broad and cumbersome black envelopes, with which even the slightest breeze plays reckless havoc.
3) Consequently, they walk with a strange, lop-sided, against-the-wind gait, even when there is no wind.
4) And as they walk, they seem always to be wondering which way to turn at the next intersection,
5) or to be deciding that a certain thing that they've been thinking about lately doesn't really matter,
6) or that nothing matters.
7) They almost never see you, but if they see you,
8) they see you as an abstraction, either interesting or beautiful,
9) or neither of these.
10) They often have paint in their hair.
