Slippin' and slidin'

nightmarelunatic on Oct. 9, 2012

It's not everyday I slip & fall at work, but when I do, it's with style.
I work at a dinky little warehouse with little to no regulations on anything. I hate it, but it pays good-like most jobs. Why not get an artist type job you ask? It should be easy right? The millions of other artist out there trying the exact same thing make it look so easy I guess. Sorry to be cynical, but I get that question so much. Non-artist types love to be your unwanted critic; they say it toughens you up. It really doesn't. It's unwanted noise especially when we didn't ask for it. It's worse coming from a person who doesn't get what the art world wants from us. Remember that when friends & famliy tell you your art is ‘pretty or ugly’. I'd rather have a disney thug tear my work apart than have another family member tell me my painting is ‘pretty’.
Sorry…I was ranting again.
