Happy New Year to all!

I wish everyone good health, good cheer, and better circumstances in your endeavors. I might as well wish myself the same things. A few thoughts about my art came to mind:

Where is my art going? Is it going anywhere? Does it matter? Of course, it does to any artist. Will I carry on painting? Of course, I will. I just hope that my website will help my art gain exposure and that it will eventually translate into sales so that I can paint some more!

Do I Want to Exhibit?

Of course, every artist wants to exhibit his or her artwork.  But I am no longer keen about getting to exhibit in galleries.  A male artist I met did not seem to care much about it.  I asked him how he sells his paintings and he said nonchalantly, “Just by word of mouth.”  True, not many artists actually sell during an exhibition but I was touched by his attitude.  He was more animated talking about what paints he uses than where or if he sells his work.  A purist, I thought.
