With the new developments going on I hate when life gets in the way of creating. Honestly if I could just go and make art all day long life would be heaven…. Well there is a reason I can’t do that and well, I think you other humans might know what that is. So what I do is try to get as much art done when I have the strength to raise a brush. Someone once told me (repeatedly actually) that if you want to succeed at art you need to live it, breath it, do it. You need to have every fiber of your passion and desire there to remind you not when you’re painting but when you aren’t… Sounds backwards right? Well its one of the best motivational sayings I’ve heard sense I started trying to be an artist.
What I mean is that the hardest part of being an artist is all the other stuff- being a business person, being a salesperson, or a tech person… I am NOT good at these things honestly. I’m not even a good research person, so getting better is a struggle. I could give examples of all the other skills artists have to acquire to be a “successful” artist chameleon but for now I’m gonna put that off. All I want to say is that this is the greatest challenge of my life and when I realized I was starting to slack off on actually making the things I was working so hard to create I made this to remind myself- art is inspiration. Art is my reason for going through all of this and if I lose that then there isn’t any reason for moving forward. So this is me being an inspired, determined, creative, lost artist chameleon. Take it or leave it, I am just an artist who loves stories.
