Hi.I was wondering what you do as an artist to keep your art going. What I'm really saying is do you have another job besides your art? I'm asking this cause my dream is to become an artist and photographer and your art is amazing that I was curious.
It can work either way and both have their pros and cons. It’s really a matter of personal preference. I’ve gone back and forth between holding a job in a parallel industry and living off of my art. Right now I’m holding a job, but I know not for how long. I’m realizing more and more that I’m not fulfilling my purpose working for someone else or spending this much time away from painting. I’m here to create and share that creativity with the world…and that’s the direction in which I’m heading.
Whatever you decide, just make sure you’re happy. That’s what really matters. Work will always be there but dreams, if not pursued, may fade. The further away they drift, the more difficult they are to recapture. Take a chance. Keep those dreams at the forefront of your decisions and they will steer you wisely.
