you know you like something when the thought of losing it makes you hurt

if i imagine myself having to part with it or sell it, and that thought seems hard or sad to me, then I know it’s been a success

the first criteria by which i determine if it was a success is if i like it when im finished with it

how boring is it that most artists will sell to people simply because they have the money

I had never been to Waco until last week and the only thing I did while there was check out the suspension bridge people throw tortillas off of 😂

That isn’t to say they’re suddenly going to enjoy it by doing these things. But it might at least help them overcome some unnecessary barriers.

Some of these folks are angry cause of the cost of the work they see in the media. Some are angry that they don’t “get it”. The former need to step back and see all of the modern art that isn’t massively famous and worth millions. The latter need to step outside of “getting it”.

If you want to make art and money, then you have to make art and value. If you want to just make art. Just make art and stop judging your success off of monetary. If you want to enjoy art, then stop obsessing over what others like/assign value to. Find what you like.

Some people make money and maybe their art isn’t any “good”, but it’s extremely valuable due to the weird web of socially constructed realities. In my opinion, when you make art you have to be very clear with yourself about what your intentions and goals are.

Some people get lucky. Some work hard and do it intentionally. Some people don’t make money and that doesn’t mean their work isn’t good. It just means there isn’t monetary value assigned to it... yet.
