Being an Artist is hard work - mentally and emotionally. We don't fit in an organized box on the "career" shelf of modern life. It is a tough road of perserverance, making oneself paint everyday. Staying motivated and working to promote an entrepreneur business. Fighting the stereotype of "the starving artist." I may wobble some days, feel lost, confused, let down by my "lack" of direction. Then I remember, every day is another day, another painting, another step forward into building my business as a freelance artist. This is just the beginning.
