Heavy Question, What Do you Value? I’m talking now about your career. Hopefully you know what is really important in life. What I’m asking is this, is it money, fame, status, validation, time or what else? As an artist I have goals of all that plus I value the connections and friendships. I also value my growth as a human being. As far as my art, I experiment a lot because if I still do paintings the same way that I did them ten years ago (even though they are sometimes better than what I’m doing today) I’m better off as an artist who’s growth is very important to me. Okay maybe my growth is mutually exclusive of my goals so now If I want to get into galleries what is better, my goals or my growth? (Yes, I’ve been in galleries.) Tough isn’t it? Let me know your feelings.
