Million Dollar Painting
I consider myself a middle class artist who loves to create art. I do not sell my art for millions yet and the artists that I know are very much like me. We attend openings for one another and often trade or buy one another's work. We enjoy visiting each others homes and studios and we enjoy hearing of one another's latest success. We live within our means and enjoy the simple things in life. We are always quick to let one another know of exhibition opportunities and often promote our artists friends every chance we get. Yes we have all set high goals to become Superstars and hope that someday in our lifetime and while we are still healthy enough to enjoy it we will achieve these dreams. The chance to make our dreams come true is what keeps us involved with the arts and all it has to offer. We keep each other motivated because we share our good news with each other so even on our worst day we might here about so and so selling 21 pieces at a decorators show and our spirits will be lifted. The artists that are my friends do not dabble in art, they give it all they have and always challenge themselves. My artist friends are international and from every form of religion to non religious etc, they come from many lifestyles and customs. Still our admiration for each other and our art bonds us together. I enjoy being a middle class artist as I am able to enjoy the simpler things in life like taking my dog for a walk, riding my bike with my son or hiking with my wife. I also get to attend a lot of art events and help support the community while enjoying some great plays, musical concerts and visual art exhibitions. Sometimes I am unable to find enough time to attend all the events I would like to and I feel bad about it. Still I know that there will be other events along the way and I will be able to make up for the missed opportunities. There are some things in life that money can not buy and those are the things that I find most worth having. God and my family and friends are the most important thing to me. After that it is creating art and so on. The best experiences in my life have had to do with generosity of time and efforts by others towards me. I love hearing about triumphs and successes and have learned most of my life lessons from my mistakes and that of others who were willing to share that information with me so I would not make the same mistakes. I know that each day my artist's friends and I are creating a richer art history for others to follow. My art may or may not sell for a million dollars some day but you can bet everything that I will have much more then a million dollars worth of enjoyment from my art, friends and family along the way. I am glad to be a middle class artists living in the United States of America today. I hope everyone reading the article lots of health and happiness and I hope that you follow your dreams and remember to let me know when you sell your 1st Million Dollar Painting as it will lift my spirits as much as it does yours.
