An artist's career always begins tomorrow. ~James McNeill Whistler
Inspiration is sometimes hard work. I can spend hours procrastinating, wondering what I want to make, what I should make.Those are usually two different things, which makes it even harder to create something. I know I have to make what sells, this is what I do for a living. There are some days I wake up and just know… ok, I must make this today or I have this wholesale order that has to be there by the end of the month, so I have to create exactly what someone else demands of me.This is a lot different than other types of artists who create works that will hang in galleries, waiting to be loved, purchased and taken home. You get the good with the bad in this case, if I make what I want all of the time, I wouldn’t be able to support my own habits of buying clay…eating food.
Even on the internet, quality artists are out there to help you. I have to give a pay it forward to two artists who have helped me recently. Thank you to Dreameyce Studio for shop advice,and a great big hug to Popogirl Animal Art for her eye opening artistic advice.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
