Painting again : LUSENET : I'd Rather Eat Glass : One Thread

Yay for you for deciding to go back to painting, dear! Fuck salable, fuck what the rest of the world thinks is good...Do what you love - The money will follow. The most important thing is to love what you're doing...

Meghan is TOTALLY 100% completely right. I was so excited for you when I read that you might go back to painting. You should do it..I could tell from your words that this is really what you want to do. If you forgot some of your techniques...relearn can do that! It's okay. Instict never dies and sometimes that's all paintings need. You will do awesome! Don't forget that we want to see too! *smiles* --Nicole

It must be so fulfilling to have a talent as you have. I can't imagine. I have to agree with the consensus so far. Do it for the love...the money will follow. How many people get the chance to do that, or take that chance?

And yes, I want to see too!

Paint. Love it. Get linseed oil on your skin, catch your breath when the dust flies off a new canvas being stretched. Feel it, love it, and don't worry about the money. The art's the thing.
