I’m back. My absence is itself a part of this blog…
Well, what did I do for all this time if not art? First of all: I grew up. Also my expectations and my innermost wishes as far as Art and Drawing are concerned became more clear.
Second of all: I was getting used to have a very good night sleep, no matter what. It seems some studies say that 10 years of poor sleeping (wether little sleep or bad quality sleep) take approximately 5 years of healthy night time in order to compensate for its psychological and neurological damages… So, only another 4 and a half years to go! 😉
Third of all, I’ve pondered. My conclusion was that none of my close family members actually actively support my emergence as an artist: a painful understanding. So, I turned into this funny/ridiculous cliché where I’m the misunderstood and miserable artist and the world is my enemy. I’m getting told to get a grip of myself and put my feet on the ground. Only that I refuse to be a cliché or to have enemies… and I clearly feel that my feet are steadily on the ground. Still, to my loved ones defense, so far I have not proven myself to them, at least not as an artist. They might see it as me selling something that I do not possess.
I’ve learned that nobody will offer the opportunity and the time to do art, unless I take it for myself . And I’ve learned that I almost have to steal it or to ferociously grab it (not my style but I’ll do it).
Also, I have learned that I have good friends following and patiently supporting me, and I am grateful for their presence! So my work will be not only for me, but for them too and for my kids, who think I’m wonderful, no matter what I do. Kind of convenient… 🙂
I’ve been watching the statistics of you all reading my blog. And they went up for a glimpse in time, only to plummet a few days later. It is not easy to have seen it but it was only normal, since I couldn’t work or write for such a long time. And I haven’t shown you any kind of worthy work results.
So, since I did enough talking, it time to get back to transforming what others might consider crazy fantasies into… reasonable dreams. Well, briefly, I’m getting back to work! 🙂
