Am I meant to be an artist?
Have you ever questioned whether you were meant to be an artist, or whether it was the best thing to pursue as a full-time career? I’ve always been drawn to other artists and often fantasize about making an income and supporting my family by creating art, however sometimes I also ponder whether this is the right path for me or if I should let my dream career remain a side hobby. The most important thing I want to focus on is spending as much time with my daughter & husband, and to be able to help support us financially. I don’t want to spend too much time wearing all the hats involved with being a successful freelance artist, I just want to create art. I also tend to feel like I should pursue art since it is the one thing I have invested the most time & money in learning, but unsure if I can get the time I desire, and the ability to support us as much as I’d like to. I’d love to hear your opinions on the subject.
