23 Jun Staying true
There’s a lot of doom & gloom out there in retail land.
Many artists produce work “to sell” rather than staying true
to a subject they love.
I admit that I have been tempted as well but when I do that, I make very bad art,
get depressed, and everything goes downhill from there. I so hate that!
So I don’t do that anymore. I have decided that you “can’t please all the people
all the time” so I paint what I like. If I think it’s good, it appears on this site,
or in a show somewhere. And if I like it, someone else (eventually) will too.
It’s a hard road, but then, there comes a spark of light! I exhibited some new
paintings (never before shown) in a pop-up show at Walsh Bay in May/June.
Two of the new ones sold without more than a few minutes on this site.
There is nothing more inspiring than having the compliment of someone liking
your work enough to buy it. Excellent. Thank you!
