One of the commenters took umbrage at another comment about those describing artists who are not emerging as those artists who can create freely, sans day job. The commenter went off. She said a bunch of stuff which included the word (her word) rubbish! I liked her passion!
I have been working very hard the past few weeks to finish things, tie up loose ends, and polish off the work of my day job before I am allowed a two month break. After reading the post about emerging artists, I thought “SHIT!! I am still “emerging” even after all these years!” However, I realized I have spent a lot of time and energy spreading my talents around to include a vast realm of tasks that may or may not have pushed me up or down as I have tried to EMERGE.
For example, I teach. I teach students who have all kinds of weirdnesses. It is very interesting, albeit exhausting work. Luckily it is a creative job, I am working as an artist, and I get to see the concrete product of this vein of spent energy. Look below to see a few art works by my students.
Yeah, I am still emerging after all these years. Shoot! I might be emerging until I am 90 years old! LOL LOL. I have no regrets though. I am an artist juggler. I dare you to try to do what I do every day.
I DARE YOU! :-)
My kid's art.
All I can say is BRAVO!!
