I’d never thought I’d become one. Destiny made this happen. I’ve always been interested in art. Colours always fascinated me. But then, I was told that créative field isn’t going to give me a future.
So I studied hard. I completed schooling with good score and battled even more harder in my engineering degree. Got placed in a software company and worked hard every single day.
Suddenly I started to feel an attachment towards my lost interest, ART. I used to free up a few hours every single day and paint or sketch something. After 6 years exactly, I had to quit my job. I was getting weak mentally. I needed to maintain my sanity. It was then that I took this up as my full time job. I worked hard, started to put up classes and shoot videos.
Painting every single day, I upload my artwork for sale on a few sites. I realised that life isn’t the same as before. Financially it has become hard and I don’t have a stable income like before. This has made me work harder. You’d never see me relaxing. I’d always be thinking about my next class or next painting/competition. But, I was never let down or pushed aside like how my colleagues did when I was in a full time job.
It is going to be a year of me working as an artist. I love this job more than anything.
I found peace and hope you do too!
P.S: Yes, I hope I get stable financially or atleast an income! 🙂
