How Many Hours Do Artists Work? - by Rizwana A Mundewadi Portfolio
When a good friend artist shared hours of working, really how many hours do we work, 2, 3 ,4 7, 9...full time.
yes art as an career is not an easy one. artists just don't make art, they have to promote their art, display their art and sending emails , newsletters regularly to art collectors and art lovers to keep them  updated about our new art. Selling art is not easy for everyone especially when we love to paint alone. Creativity levels have always to be on the high, open chakras for accepting,  to keep making art, over  and over, years and many years,  and many artists when cannot make a good piece often fall into depression mood swings and irritable syndromes and people call them eccentric. They are just innocent people, want ot be left alone for some time making art.
Some leave the journey unfinished and choose another path, some struggle with making small artworks for sale, while some continue gracefully for their life making art.
Artists are always painting in their mind, like   me I am  sure other artists are also restless, so many times, in middle of the nights when an image sparks off..colours, when  shopping some thing excites us as in from, color, texture,, and when on trips a piece grabs our attention. Usually I never paint from direct pictures, what I love is,  only the color and shapes, shapes are sacred, sacred shapes excite me to make art.. In close contact with nature each day brings new colors in life and new images, so many ideas, so much  to paint,... so little time...FULL TIME JOB!
and with all this keep your art precious, undiluted, untouched by the outside world and continue to paint as you love. Whether or not you are prepared to give your life , for art ..only then,.. .join this journey of say those who have travelled far off on this path, they really have given their lives for art.
While on this spiritual journey of The Red Pilgrim, as I continue to make healing art...
I wish to make simple colorful understandable art, art that heals. Portfolio
