So my last blog post was in 2016.
Does anyone read blog posts anymore?
I have completed a lot and not much since 2016 but the one thing that is constant is the search for my style, what is popular and something that meets in the middle. Creating art my myself but showing and trying to get found in the sea of the internet established artists feels like high school again. All I wanted was for high school to be over. And now I’m trying to get into the cool crowd. I have been for years…
Art is only art when someone says it is. But popular art is somehow a mix of the expected; flowers, abstracts that all look the same, really bad portraits or are they really great naive art?
So where do I fit in? I don’t even know how great or bad my art is. I only have a theme of colours and textures and it doesn’t seem like it’s enough.
I’ve tried countless mentoring sessions, art business seminars, small business workshops which all boast that they can help your business but in the end it doesn’t help people find you. Or tell you if your idea is crap.
So I will be here this year, trying different things but in the same general way because I believe in my art and feel that it needs to be in the world.
Hopefully that stupid confidence will be the ‘fake it till you make it’ facade I need to keep going until someone finally notices.
