The photo above is of my friend and her sweet new baby girl. The painting hanging on the wall was painted by me. This photo seriously makes me feel legit.
I remember always being completely amazed at artwork as a small child. To see another human being being in any way moved by something I created is intensely inspiring.
It makes me want to make so much art I might explode.
You know what else makes me feel legit? People that want me to paint them something. I have two commissions right now and that really feels good. It's been a while.
All of this stuff together as well as having a relaxed and positive day job make me very hopeful for the future.
Who knows? This art thing might work out afterall.
