Your art

The world needs it.


This is art. It’s batshit crazy but it brings me absurd amounts of amusement.

Imagine if Bjork became an accountant.

The Beatles? Mechanics.

Stevie Nicks became a hairdresser.

Being an artist is hard. The pay is usually crap (if there’s any pay at all). The hours are never ending (and you can never retire). Being an artist is a way of life that requires sacrifice, commitment and deep wells of self-belief.

And all for what? A couple of paintings? A song? A book?

If you doubt the point, think about what moves you. Is it your tax return or is it an old song that reminds you of a scene in a movie?

Art is the fairy in the bread.

  1. Well said, Em, gives us all a little courage to do what we love, not what pays the bills (when those two things aren’t the same!). Thanks 🙂

    Cute picture! That reminds me of the famous painting “dogs playing poker” by C. M. Coolidge. Most of my family members are artsy, even if we don’t make much money, it’s okay coz we are happy with what we are doing.
