Let me tell you a story. A friend of mine who is an artist was having pretty good success in her field for several years. She kept winning awards at all the art shows and she was selling on a pretty regular basis. A small art festival was happening in her area so she decided to have a booth. She set up and the day did not turn up any sales. It as disappointing to say the least. However one person saw her at that little art show and approached her about representing her work in his gallery.
That one connection changed her life. She went from small potatoes to big ones almost overnight. She made 30 thousand dollars in one year from him selling her work. 30 thousand was just her cut so he sold 60 thousand dollars worth of work in one year. I am telling you this story because sometimes we cannot see value in what we are doing — right away. Sometimes we think it is a waste of time. But you never know, somebody may find you because you have your work in a restaurant and they may be a broker and they might have been looking for someone like you all their lives.
It is always a thrill to create anything. it is so much better than just thinking about doing it. Even if you do something that is subpar”who cares?” it is not the end of the world.
it is the beginning of the world.
Ha that is what just doing it is about. Even if you do a mud mess when it should have been a painting,,, get up brush yourself off and start again.
The depression comes when you finish , so never never finish any project. Make it a big project so it will take a lifetime to get done.
My husband and I have a little house that is a rental and we were making plans for fixing it up more than it already is .
Way more. We want to turn it into a jewel box complete with diamonds and emeralds. IL have never seen a house with this, so now is the time to do the front door all jewels. What a delight to come home to a jewel encrusted front door.
also I want to paint it deep purple and plant a lavender farm in the front yard.
We like to plan. It is more fun than not planning.
You only live once. be outrageous because what is the alternative. not be outrageous. ug how boring!
