I don't have a lot to say today either, and apparently my typing skills are totally lacking today.
I took today to really try and forget for a minute that I am making art to sell. One of the things that I really find myself questioning is am I making art for myself, for other people, or just for the sake of trying to make money? I know that those are kinda ugly questions...but I find myself asking them quite a bit. So I am trying to get back to this idea of making things to make things. Trying to keep myself in it. I don't know if I am really making sense to anyone but myself, but I have been thinking about this a lot today, and recently.
Not that I don't think that my work is not me! No. That's not what I mean at all. I guess I get a little to focused on the whole money issue, and I know what will sell, so I keep making it...but at the same time...I really really really don't want to have to work a job that I am not happy at. And I still need to pay the bills...so I don't know. I guess this is where things start confusing me.
Well, anyway. Today I really focused on drawing and working with materials that were directly around me. No running around trying to find stuff. I just sat down and worked with what I had. I really enjoyed myself and have a few things to post later. They aren't quite done yet :)
Anyway. Hope everyone had a good Friday and hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
