TGP Posted October 18, 2021 Report Share Posted October 18, 2021 Hey guys! I thought I might start with a whole story; but my creativity is spent and I got alot on my plate. Lets see depending on what you know; i might have alot to tell you or very little. As I've written elsewhere on NF; since leaving NF 1.5years ago- Art has become a very serious passion for me. i've vowed to get good as fast as possible but to stay on the trek and not burn out. You may remember that I love Big hard inspiring endurance challenges and I've tackled a 100mile hike and a 26mile run. well surely they pale to the momental challenge of trying to make money with one's art; no matter how good you strive to be at it. So I'll be honest; for a long time I was sure I was not longer a rebel. concerned with art; I've maintained a very low mileage running program with no impressive fitness or health goals beyond keeping what I've earned in the last few years of those bigger endurance challenges. but... frankly... I've missed you. I 've tried discord, posted a bit on the social media- none of it is quite what you find here, a tight community of encouragement. for those that don't know. ARt is Hard ! very hard! I've spent time learning to draw a recognizable picture of micheal jackson and then dived into paintings of sunsets. I've done beautiful women in colored pencil and tried a dragon . its all really REALLY hard; and trying to improvement the accuracy and likeness of something is a painful road of failure and persistence. towards the top of the summer I started increasingly to feel that I had art good enough to share and perhaps sell. I've got deep issues (and frankly future insecurity) at work- so there's motivation to slowly work towards a job of passion , rather then the dull monotonous slog my current job seems to be. but the price is getting up in the middle of the early morning- and getting some cool idea only to mostly ruin in on the canvas before the start of the day. and do the same thing tomorrrow and the day after that. there's no other path towards getting good at this, I fear. As we start this challenge the first formal steps of starting an art business in on the horizon. I have 2 painted priced to sell downtown and I intend to pay the sales tax as a new business. if they don't sell soon (which is likely); I might delay this as long as the beginning of 2022 for tax purposes. but No later than that. hopefully you'll forgive a challenge thats not so fitness oriented. fitness is still important to me; but ART has become my passion and I must continue if its to become any answer to my dreary job.... 5 Quote https://rebellion.nerdfitness.com/index.php?/topic/116426-im-awake/ the "NEW" normal is good with me! as Life was Never really Normal anyways....
