I'm not sure when exactly, while lying in bed, maybe just as I was waking most likely.. that time when we get these epiphanies... and my thought was "hey, there is that belief again about artist's.. I put in a lot of time with my paintings and I should get paid.. and NOT a minimum wage either. I had a plumber come in for 15 minutes and charged me 96.00! WTF!!! They are in a position to get it - we as artists have a commodity that is not a need (which could be debatable). I understand art is not in the same category as food, rent, clothing... but it IS something that brings joy.. peace.. beauty.. even healing.
So, doubt be gone.
I do not want to play with you anymore.
