Hey guys! First of all I want to thank all of you to like, share and comment my posts. And also all of those who came to my apartment to view and buy my art. You are all making this artist proud and happy 😊.
So after all of the commissions I had in the last couple of months, I ran out of materials completely. I decided to pay a visit to my local art supplier and buy everything I need to carry on making art. Easy, beside the fact I couldn’t drag all of it at ones on my own. I decided to order a cab! Pretty standard right? See I hope you guys kinda get how easy life is for me, so far with this story…The car arrives. The driver confirms my name. He opens the boot of the car, and helps me to load all my canvases, colours, bags, boxes, and more canvases. We jump in the car and he affirms “you pretty dedicated for a hobbyist”…quite proud I go “Darling, this is my job, I’m an Artist”. He then goes “Did you study to make art?”. “Nope, I haven’t studied to make art, I learned all myself. My parents always thought me to follow what I believe, even tho they didn’t get me. But they gave me everything they could afford, and I managed to do the rest my own. I feel quite lucky to be fair”. He then changed his attitude and tells me “Well my parents sent me to Science school cause they believed, and I still, that being an artist won’t be as remunerative as a normal job…” I then switched too by his assumptions, answering “Honey, I am pretty sure I am paying the fare for my journey, and that your boot is loaded with stuff I need to continue my career…” He changed again trying to show me all of his story about wanting to be an actor/director in theatres, his note book filled with thoughts and acts..I wasn’t impressed. That for me is pretty standard. You see? I live easy. If I want to do something I do it, obviously without affecting others. Very few are able to make a difference with what they really want cause they know it’s closer to their heart. So is what I am doing here.
I just want everybody to know that if you really believe in something, despite the fact money are involved or not, you can do it. Yes, money can give you the freedom not to choose anymore. But do they enhance your imagination or make you an expert?
What do you guys think? What do you see here? What path would you rather follow, the one that gives you comfort but not joy, or the one that rewards you as a human being?
