Holy Bird Worshipper

I'm currently just testing how I can blog pictures from my flickr account. It seems so easy to share your artwork with others over the internet, or at the very least post stuff. Still with flickr, blogger, myspace and all the other free sites, I still would like to have something that is my own. I have a half done website just waiting to be posted. Creatively I just feel a bit stuck as I have some extra coding to do (yeah for html and flash, why do they have to be so confusing at times). I wonder if having my own site will help to move the whole artist thing a long.

I heard an interview with an painter, he said that once he got a family, that "making it" didn't matter as much, it was more important that he had them. Anyone want to get married?

Time oh Time

Ok so I'm 25 years old. I know it might sound silly but I worry sometimes that it's to late for me. That I'm to old to "make it" as an artist. That I won't have ever have huge success, that I won't leave my mark and that I'm doomed to be someone who tried and became nothing but satisfactory. Of coarse I don't know what success really looks like, is it when I don't have to worry about money? is it when I know a bunch of top end artists? is it when I have a show at a high end gallery? is it when I'm working for Nike? Maybe it's just an age thing, maybe it's just that I see that I won't be able to do everything I ever wanted to in life, I won't meet everyone I want or go to every place. There is not enough time, or enough of me, to do all the paintings and projects and parties and travel. I think I'll take a breath and just look at what I have, say thank you for it, and plan some good stuff for the future.

Little Moments

I just finished a very nice water color piece this evening. It's very nice when you still surprise your self as an artist. As the years go on some times you wonder "what's the point?", then you create something you find beautiful and special and it becomes clear again. The little moments end up meaning so much in the end, and art some how lets me live and feel a live. It's like the feeling when you were a child and you got lost in your own world. To see the world as a little one is something I wish not to lose.

Please have a good day, and may you look at the world with new eyes opened:)
