The Next Step

It has been more than a month since I have made a blog post. I may not have many avid readers, but nonetheless, I need to commit. "The Drought" has taken over. I have had many ideas, but no time for anything to receive enough attention to allow blooming. My life has been taken over by waste. 1 page reflection papers about topics I have no feeling about, 10 page research papers with another senior that literally thought the world was flat for 40 minutes. Torture.

My next month of life will be devoted to art. I will be on break and art needs to be created. I have new ideas and old painting that need to come to completion. Monetary restraints will be lifted and art can flow. My dorm will become my studio.

  1. Byron,

    I can relate to your disappointments. I am an artist too experiencing the same. Being a budding artist and surviving financially is really difficult. The time that you should have been spending to your art is distracted by attending to support yourself financially by other means. Its really disappointing and sometimes frustrating especially at times you are really inspired to create an artpiece but couldnt do it immediately because of other commitments.

    At any rate my advice is never to give up on what you enjoy doing. Remember that it takes a long time to prove yourself into the artworld anyway.

    I wish you all the best.
