Can You Ensure A Solid Career As an Artist?
Any artist who has been in the business for an extended period of time has certainly experienced the roller coaster ride and the many lows that come along with it. But while those lows are inevitable, there are things you can do both in your life and in your career that I truly believe will ensure both your happiness and your longevity in pursuing what is a very tough career. There are a few things I did that changed everything for me, and I would like to share them with you. First, don’t make painting your everything. It goes without saying that the craft should be important to you, but if you make it your entire world, you will feel a miserable amount of pressure. It will feel even worse when you experience those many inevitable lows. Check your own backyard first before tapping outsiders who do not know who you are and what you’re doing. It’s easier to work with someone who already has an idea of what and who you are all about because these people was first and foremost attracted to your art even before you did anything to promote it. You’re probably wondering how to become a successful painting artist, can be a scary road. Don’t let it be.
