Life as an artist is not always a path that they feel they have chosen. More over it is a journey one feels compelled to take. To not take it means a life unfulfilled and a gift that is wasted, not to mention that inward voice that whispers, “CREATE IT!”
To be successful, one must be committed to the work, hardened to rejection, and open to change. All of those things are challenges. The art we create is a part of who we are. To subject it to criticism does not feel good! …. even yet our motto should be… “Get over it and move on!”
I believe the good artists do just that! They move on! In fact, any successful person in life continues moving on. We learn from the past but we don’t live in it!
An artist must be brave!
