Transitions are Sometimes Endings
I’m giving up.
I’m doing this because I need to clear away stuff that has been hanging over me and taking up mental capacity that I don’t have right now. Depression is a hard thing to talk about; there are many people who have written much more eloquently about how it has affected their lives and their work, so I’m not going to reiterate.
Once upon a time I thought that I would do art (maybe even Art). I am not as good at self-study and self-direction as I thought. I have been flitting about trying different types of processes, and they’re getting ever stranger and ever cheaper because I haven’t got money to invest in decent materials or space to work or time to think.
I thought I would make money selling prints.
I thought I would make money photographing things.
These things haven’t happened. I don’t do self-promotion well, and my confidence in my own abilities is pretty much non-existent at the moment.
I am eternally grateful to the people who have bought things from me; I sometimes wonder why they did.
Removed stuff about the store that no longer exists.
I don’t know what I’m going to do with this site. Maybe I’ll put up something that I’ve been working on without worrying if they’re finished enough or good enough or interesting enough. Maybe that will be enough.
