Sometimes people ask me, why don't I do more art? The truth is, sometimes I have other important things going on in my life. Some people ask if I get to use my creativity while running my business. I think people assume that I would take the photographs or design the website. While I love art, I enjoy photography, and I like creating digital images as well, I do have many other talents. It may be hard to believe, but I also take pleasure and pride in managing employees, finances, and customers. So, believe me, I am a full fledged business person, just as much as I am an artist.
I have realized, I do miss creating art. I plan to create and post more art in the near future. There are ALWAYS excuses not to make art. People ALWAYS think they don't have time to make art. But, there ALWAYS actually is time to make art, just like there's time to work out. Most people don't realize the time they spend on their phone or watching TV is actually the time to make art. I will get back to it, I promise! To me, it is not impossible to run a business and make art on the side. And there's no shame in making art on the side, or even taking a break from art at times, even though I did go to art school and pay mightily for that art degree. I believe there are plenty of art school grads that do not make careers out of art. There is no shame in that. Embrace art and embrace life please.
