I’ve asked myself this question repeatedly. For several years I made my living by offering bookkeeping services for a variety of businesses. Approximately five years ago I believed it was time for me to alter my livelihood, to something which possibly suited my character longer, and therefore I decided to pursue my lifetime dream of becoming a complete time artist.
I probably make less money today, as an artist, and the income isn’t necessarily reliable, nevertheless my work undoubtedly is much more satisfying… I had this desire to make, ever since I remember myself, and I believe this continuous need to make and my nearly obsessive job with art and endless pursuit for artistic perfection, have to do with the necessity to concentrate on the positive in life instead of the ordinary, mundane, trivial, sad, tragic, and the unfair which surrounds us. For me personally, and probably for a lot of my art buyers, art is only… an escape.
Painting miniature for me is indulging in an enjoyable and very enjoyable action the outcomes of that I understand will even delight others… It’s producing an imaginary, utopian, ideal universe, where there is not any awful, nasty, sad…And sharing it with other men and women. Inviting others in… It’s offering some relaxation, some treatment, some expect – because a canvas gets the magical abilities to catch the beauty of a topic and suspend it in time to get centuries. Maybe this is my small effort at trying to achieve something a little nearer to eternity.
Eternity…a belief that I will ‘t even start to comprehend. My miniature painting service is a celebration of nature, along with the wonders of this, the colors, the textures, the contrasts, the audio of lighting, the whispering of the end, the eternal dance of sea waves. It’s hoping to immortalize incredible creatures, and paying regard to almighty heavens using their enormous palette of weathers, and finally, adopting life, harmony and love, rather than destruction and war, As this glorious globe, that gave birth to all of us and is currently much more in dire need of our tender loving care and admiration.
