I haven’t quite finished it yet, but I can already tell you that it’s excellent, because it goes into why it is that artists have to put—or creative people I should say, in general—not just artists as in painting, but creative people need to put their work out there and do marketing and find patrons in order to survive and get paid for their work.
Today’s food for thought is brought to you by Henry David Thoreau. Here are some of his quotes, which I hope you’ll find inspirational.
“I learned this, at least, by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.”
“Our life is frittered away by detail. Simplify, simplify.”
