For the first time in my life, I do not have to make art to sell…but make no mistake about it, selling my work is the most spectacular feeling of creative accomplishment, artistic success, financial validation and I like it. I genuinely like it. Not to mention, I could really, really, really use the money.
Releasing that desire to please a buying market and turning into myself and my feelings as a source of inspiration has been one of the most difficult vulnerable things I think I have ever done…..and am still doing it
I have no idea if the work I am doing is good, appealing, or in sale-able color pallets. HELL….. I am not even sure I like it! I just know for the first time in my life I NEED to make it….for me.
