Company of good people is a must, it is as good like visiting a perfume shop, whether you buy it or not you are bound to receive the fragrance, having good company is essential for every artist, as we are influenced by the people we are surrounded with, it is important that every artist be connected in some or other way to other artists.
Never let other peoples failures affect you, except for the purpose of learning. It is very easy today to get demotivated by observing other peoples failures, rejections, learn and move on. Problems rejections failures are for everyone, the strongest person is the one who knows when and how to get up, get back!
This is bound to be a long jurney so have observed, artists have been there along, for years and years, following your heart, keep your passion alive, be wary of depressive people, those who are always pessimistic, be an optimist, and be near optimists. Questions will come up, why , how and when, do not let the loud voices, hear the little voice and go on.
meet artists in art galleries, visit online galleries, make friends with artists in real as well as online, and very important keep making art, you never realise so many people are looking up to you, do not let them down.
working for success will make you a master of it, but working for satisfaction will make you a legend. Masters are everywhere but legends are few, keep going!
I wish to make simple abstract colorful understandable symbolic art, art that heals!
