June is going to be a busy month

Just signed a lease on a place in the city with the boy. It’s adorable and would even be reducing my rent. AND I just got accepted to a local arts/crafts show this coming month so I have a lot to do in June

Been making a lot of burger art recently including this painted moleskin notebook. No regrets.

Anonymous said: Also I would stop painting. Sounds harsh but it brings you down. Less cutesy animals more creature like ceramics. God your ceramics are good.. Cheers to you! Xx

Why the hell would you say something like that? I love painting as much as I love ceramics and you have no right to dictate what you think I should be making. If I want to make kitsch then I will. Not to mention the fact that any response I’ve had to my paintings have been far more positive than with my ceramics.

So I got another rejection email this morning

It’s alright, I was reaching on that one. I thought it was a template email and  was about to close it when I saw the last line of the email, saying I should make more work like that of my BFA show. So, essentially everything I’ve made in the two years since I’ve graduated is nothing and I should go back to something I have already done and don’t actually have the studio capacity to do at the moment.

I realize that rejection is part of trying to be a working artist but at what point am I just deluding myself into thinking that things will work out. It’s hard for anyone to admit but what if I’m really not as special or as smart or as talented as I’ve allowed myself to believe. And if so, at what point do I cut my losses and choose a new career path?
