It’s no big secret I would love for nothing more than to become a full time professional artist. Making money from doing something you love so passionately I suspect is everyone’s utopian dream.
My facebook friends have been my close companions as I rise at the crack of dawn to paint not because of my love for my art but because I have a day job which is of course a necessary evil. We must work if we want to eat.
I have to say having to report daily to my FB buddies has given me the motivation to get up early and to paint so regularly. Without their interest and eagerness to see me at the next stage in the development of each painting I am not sure I would give it quite as much energy. So for that I am grateful.
Over the last couple of days I have been nursing a toothache and that has hampered my progress somewhat. It has amused me to see messages of sympathy supported by tried and tested remedies after a recent post. It is nice to see so many people interested in my physical wellbeing as they are in my work. I have had a radiating toothache and the dentist can’t offer a proper explanation for this pain just yet so I am dosed up with Co Codamol and antibiotics. I do know I have stress fractures in my molars caused by clamping my teeth tightly as I sleep and I do know for a fact that my love in the past for chewing gum has contributed to this somewhat.
Being of an entrepreneurial mind I have toyed with the idea of inventing the first nocturnal molar shields but that’s all its going to be at the moment. An idea but if you ever see it out there… remember you read about it here first.
Well just to bring you all up to scratch and on a par with my FB buddies, friends and supporters, here is my current painting ‘Brighton Fair’ in progress.
Stay tuned. Stay focused. Stay blessed!
