In case I was in doubt before…..now I know for sure that I love art and absolutely adore playing with paper.
If anyone had told me that I would make a 220 page concertina journal for free….I would have laughed so hard I’d probably pee myself.
Aside from the fact that watercolour paper ain’t cheap…..I am loving making.
I never really doubted loving what I do….but now I know that money is not my motivation. It is the buzz of the creative process. I feed off the energy of the creative process.
I know….money pays bills so it is a double blessing to be paid to do whatsoever you love.
However…..it should never really be about the money.
It has to be about passion.
(It’s a good thing making art is not my day job….I would definitely be ‘as broke as’!)
What can I say….? Not every artist is a brilliant salesperson!
Hats off to all artists who double as salespeople too….must be tough.
