What’s better than a chick in a box? Three chicks in a box!!!
I think that while being an artist in this day and age may be easier in general, it does have its drawbacks. Not only do we worry if our art will have buyers, we worry if our art will be well liked in social media. Guaranteed, both audiences are very different. I’ve learnt the hard way that what the mass audience like may very well be something that cannot be monetized.
That itself leads to a whole different kind of thinking. We end up thinking that we should paint in order for our art to be monetised. and also to be liked. I think that itself is unnecessary stress, life shouldn’t be that difficult. Just doing what we like would suffice. Everything else comes naturally.
It has to start at the heart after all.
