What do you want as an Artist?

Art by Delilah

At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want.”
- Lao-tzu (lived during the 6th Century BCE), Philosopher of Anchient China
You know the answer to the question. What do you want from your art career.Think, Is it money, recognition ,to become better at your medium? You may not have written it down or shared it with anyone not even your closest friend  Today is the day to start your journal a secret place where you put down those hopes, fears and dreams. Write it down in ink, pick a color, and start. Writing them down makes it real. You know who you are and now you have put down in ink what you want.
I use green ink, it makes it more fun, For me at the center of who I am is this happy person who paints because she love it.
Now that you have written down what you want lets start a path to getting there. Baby steppes. Pink ones, blue one oh-la-la green ones. Yes, babies fall down, but they get back up. Remember it's not how many times you fall down( In artistic terms get turned down for a show,gallery,didn't make the sale), it happens to the best of us, it's how many times you get back up. Last one standing Wins.
Baby steps and we will soon be running. Race you to the finish line.
Artist Hugs to all of us runners.
