I feel like I'm at a very difficult point in my career, I'm ready to break my dependency on my "day job" but is my work (painting) ready? Am I at a point where I could make my painting my only work if I took the chance and dedicated the time I spend at my day job towards marketing and managing my own business?
For more than two years I've worked full time in a day job and clocked as many hours--or more--in the studio. There has been growth in my work as evidenced in an increase of exhibitions and sales, as well as requests to lead workshops and teach. It's been a good journey bur the simple truth is that I'm not sure how much longer I can sustain this schedule.
I write this on my commute to work from the studio... I guess I'm not quite there, yet.
