I think it’s a wonderful time in history to be an artist. There are so many opportunities out there to show your work and be seen. For example, I pinned my last painting to Pinterest and within a few minutes ten people had repinned it. Off it went into cyberspace to be viewed by a unknown number of strangers. Every time I post a painting I wonder what life it will have, who will see it and what the reaction will be.
Every artist dreams of bigger and better things. If people buy their art it makes it possible to continue making art. Every “bottle” I send out into the cyber ocean brings me closer to realizing my dream. It only takes the right person at the right moment to view one of my paintings for everything to change. It’s such an exciting prospect. It’s a good time to be an artist.
