My painting career hasn’t always been consistent. Between grad school, my part time job as a writer, and personal life, I barely have free time to relax — much less create. But I thought it’s important to accept that, that the life of an artist isn’t easy. No artist will say life is easy. If it were, they won’t have anything to paint or sculpt or perform about; but an artist’s life is always colorful.
I have been working on this painting for months, and I’m not even close to finishing it, but that’s okay. I’m working on it consistently. As long as it’s not collecting dust, untouched, in a corner in my room, this painting will be finished.
