Day 13: m - monkey 🐒
lately i’ve been all about the idea of doing art on your own terms. the idea that you should be the artist you want to be, not the one you think you should be. 💪🏼
when i first started painting (this was years ago) i had so many people telling me what i should do, “you should make cards!” “you should do art fairs!” “you should make prints!” “this is what will make you successful, muted colors!” and you know what? i had so many of these voices telling me what to do my own was snuffed out.
because here’s the thing, it wasn’t until i started doing business on my own terms that i felt good about it. it wasn’t until i started saying yes to the projects i actually wanted and no to what i didn’t that my art actually felt authentic. ✨
so here’s my challenge for you today: listen to yourself. what do you want to do? don’t just keep trying things that feel empty... do the things that are an honest reflection of you!! because your input, your thoughts, and your opinions are the most important when it comes to doing art on your own terms. 💕
