As I begin my "work week", working on websites and such, I think about the other things that I am drawn to be doing: sketching, starting my new piece, writing and reading. I spoke with someone last spring about wanting to leave my job and make art and his advice was to keep making art - put it out there and then at some point let the income from the "passion/mission" take over for the income of the job. That is where I am. I am encouraged as I had an inquiry from someone wanting to purchase my work yesterday. What a blessing it is to be part of a larger path that is of your choosing.
