And I don't care.
It might be the first time in decades that I don't care. I'm painting for me. I'm working through personal issues with paint and feeling a pleasure that I haven't felt for a very long time -- and kind of stumbling into an awareness that this kind of painting is far more important than all the BS I did as an illustrator/graphic designer through the years.
It would be nice to get money for these paintings, but the paintings are more important to me than the bucks. Of course this is only true because I still have enough money to keep the lights on. Life would be so much easier if I had a trust fund or a patron. (If you didn't see the other painting, you can see it here.)
