It’s been a long time since I really looked at what it takes to be a fine artist. There has to be a commitment to it like anything else. It can be a very lonely trip creating art and then having someone else see it, find out what they like about it and even why I do it.
For as long as I can remember I’ve had a very strange relationship with the idea that I could be a successful fine artist. I mean, really, how do you know if you’re a success at something as organic and natural as creating art. You could have such a high standard of what success is and someone else could look at you and say you’re a success just by the mere fact you created something.
