I have been allowing my creative juices to flow at a natural trickle for the last few years, and as a consequence I feel more content with my artwork than at any other time in my life..
I used to think... If only more people could see my work then maybe someone might actually like it enough to buy it...
I used to say.... "I paint whatever I want and if someone likes it enough to buy it, then great."
Really I was only kidding myself... In all honesty from the moment I size a canvass I was telling myself this is the one.... the one that everybody will love........
Well all that hogwash is over!....... These days I'm more relaxed, I do a bit of non-art related work to pay the bills and generally institute the art ethic as and when I can be arsed.
I drink more tea, care little about the state of the economy..... "which is consistent with our politicians" and generally enjoy the idle life as much as possible.
I was just wondering if I was in a minority of one or whether I was following a well trodden path ????
If I can dispense a bit off free advise..... Cast off the jacket of financial restraint and live to work... don't work to live!
