I finally worked on this painting again. It’s been a while and I already have a new idea for my black canvas one.
I wonder what it’s like to be able to work on being creative all day and earn money doing this. I imagine one wakes up, has coffee, and then just gets to it at home, writing or painting, or creating whatever. Stephen King always comes to mind when I think of this. I picture him just waking up and writing for the better part of the day, but having more free time and not being tethered to a desk or anything like that. Although I can understand how one might feel trapped in that scenario as well, or, a pressure to perform. Then there’s the whole self-esteem aspect, like would one perform for oneself better than for a boss or company? Would one be too hard on oneself?
Right now I’m at don’t quit my day job. I like my day job, so that’s okay with me. I do wonder what it’s like to be free to devote the whole day to your mind and what your mind wants to conjure up. Someday?
