  2. Have you ever ‘shown’ your work? I have no idea how photographers get their stuff out there in the public eye…

    • I’ve done booths at art fairs and entered a contest or two. Won a blue ribbon at the Florida State Fair 25 years ago. Never really tried to market myself though. I’m afraid I’ll lose my joy by trying to make it work, ya’ know? I’m happy to be what I am….but I’d certainly take the call if it came. 😃

      • That is true! When it becomes ‘work’ some of the shine wears off. H feels that way about woodworking – he builds furniture as a hobby and once he took a job from a contractor friend to build a custom mantel for a fireplace and he hated every minute of it! Even though the customer was happy with it!

      • Yep. Just different when you introduce pressure, deadlines, and bosses. 😝

      • Yep. That’s why J got out of commercial art. She would be told by clients to use her creative Liberty, then it would be summarily bashed and dismantled. Sucked her joy right away. I bet I didn’t see her actually sketch or paint anything for two years after changing careers. 😃

      • Yeah, that sucks! And it ruins your confidence! Even though art is so very subjective. I don’t know how anyone could be an art critic.

      • Oh, that’s easy. Just stare at a piece, with your chin in one palm, pretend you know what the fuck your talking about, and describe said work in a laborious, and inane, manner, all while looking like a combo of aloof and constipated. Oh, and having little or no artistic skills oneself is an added bonus. 😃

      • Eh. I’m sure most are fine people with art backgrounds. But, I bet some are just as I described. 🙂

    • Time is a great commodity. Just ask those spoiled do-nothing brats that some call “royals”. I would say they have more time than money, but they appear to have an abunence of both….thanks to their expense accounts, er, taxpayer contributions. Bastards.


  4. Excellent lights for this week’s challenge. 😀
