Let’s go crazy by Prince. I don’t know about you but I’ve occasionally felt like going crazy over the last 12 months. Crazy feeling I’m tripping over the children on a daily basis. Crazy that I feel unable to really get out anywhere. Crazy as I can’t see friends and family. Crazy that I feel as though I’m living in an almost constant groundhog day and even crazy, to some extent, with my artwork. God, grant me the serenity!
I’m trying to find my niche. Hence my work around well known individuals but with my own slant. I’ve also been trying to get my work out there more which can be difficult especially when you have certain organisation’s claiming copyright to individual’s images which are in the public domain. This has lead to a whole new level of craziness and frustration!
I’m trying to stay true to myself, painting what sits right with me but there’s always a conflict. At the end of the day I could certainly do with some sales coming through so I’ve now ventured out into professional prints of my work, both framed and unframed. I love my art making and have spent years developing (and still am) my techniques. I remember, on a daily basis, the importance of creating for the love of it and sharing that love with others.
Still, look and you will see; listen and you will hear; seek and you will find. I put my faith in what will be, accepting what is and having gratitude for the beautiful things I already have in my life. May 2021 bring you a more positive, rewarding and peaceful time.
