thoughts that echo
 
Lost a few backers recently... worried that I'm not doing enough to deserve backing. Or maybe I'm not a great artist as I still haven't gotten into local galleries despite trying. Self doubts a burden of most creatives. We're all feeling a bit of the political doom right now, and its fair to say art isn't as important unless it's to help causes. In the end I do art cause I have to. Cause I feel useless as a human otherwise. Cause I think thats what others want or expect of me to fuel their hope, inspiration. Recently I heard about an artist that took their life... and it echoes with me. All artists matter. So if you're out there and feel like you need to remove your patronage of me, then direct it to another artist or a helpful cause, or your own art. ❤️
