Something stuck me yesterday , and I can not seem to get it out of my head. I was talking with someone about art and they had mentioned that their mother was an artist " you know a real artist, she makes $40,000 for her work ". I was struck by a few things. Do we measure an artist by how much money they make for their work or by the content and process?
As artist , we are constantly questioning are method and validity....... how can we not? Does success mean we must get our work to that high price tag ( which I surely hope to never see, my god!!! ) or is it knowing that someone else has found a connection to what it is you have worked so hard at making?
It is so strange the perception that people have around what "Art " really is and what makes you a real artist . I do not have a studio per say and I do not sell my work for large amounts of money and yes I do find inspiration in the simplest of things....... but I feel that in my heart I live my truth and hope that somehow that translates ..... it is real ......... and sometimes it is art.
Talk to you soon,
