I kind of took a sabbatical when it comes to my art. I quit painting for fun and started trying to paint what I thought people wanted. I started comparing my art to everyone else's. I started to get so frustrated that nothing I made was selling. And I quit! I quit creating anything for about 2 years. because let's face it... that shit is toxic. I had to step away.
What I allowed it to do, once again, was make me doubt my ability to create. But this time it only lasted about a week. And then I gave that entire thought process the big FU finger wave! It wasn't others judging me, it was that self doubting little voice that I spent years strangling to death and burying. Bitch tried to come back to life!! Ah hell no!!
So those are just a tiny few lessons I have learned in the past couple of years. All that being said, I do have a web page with art for sale. Look, don't look, buy don't buy. I dig it, and that is really all that matters in my journey. Maybe you'll just enjoy looking at it and wondering what the hell I was thinking when I painted it?
Peace, Love and Funk y'all.
