Works In Progress
I am spending almost all of my time in therapy right now working on how to earn some money from my artwork or from other creative pursuits. I am, in a sense, gambling on whether or not this current therapeutic focus is going to pay off. Literally.
I was watching this cool documentary on Andy Warhol the other night. What a creative genius. I loved this one thing he said-- when his early Brillo Boxes and Campbell's Soup Boxes were first exhibited, many people didn't get them and some longtime collectors of his work backed away. Apparently he said, "Don't sit around and worry if people like or don't like your art. Just keep on making more art." Obviously he had the last laugh-- those Brillo boxes are worth a fortune today.
He was a sad figure though; another story.
His interviews crack me up. If only all celebrities took some cues from him and just spoke as little as possible when asked inane questions, instead of giving inane answers.
I think I'm rambling. I'm supposed to be working on some color charts for my painting class, ugh!
