Sometimes I go with the flow. Sometimes I feel compelled to swim upstream.
As an established professional artist, going with the flow pays the bills. Swimming upstream doesn’t – at least not right away. The tricky thing about being a professional artist is that clients want me to create more of what they expect from me. However, if I don’t grow and stretch in new directions, they will eventually become bored with my work. So, I need to find a balance between going with the flow and swimming upstream to keep my creative self happy, and to give my clients something fresh.
This blog is definitely swimming upstream.
