I have been a host for over two years now and I love it. I admire many of the artists who submit works to my groups. They are creative and talented individuals with amazing skills. I can’t compare myself to them as I have discovered my mediocrity. Because of poor vision and other health issues, I am left to a creative mind, but lacking the skill to convey the idea.
I am not complaining, mind you. I would never give up my art. It’s just the years are flying by and I have very little to show for it. Redbubble has given me hope and joy. I have had over 80 features since I joined in 2009. I have had 4 solo Art exhibitions and sold work. I have donated over !00 paintings to St Vincents Hospital here in Melbourne. In spite of it all, I still feel mediocre.
I am almost 50 and wanted to accomplish more than I have. Ce La Vie…we are all doing our pathetic best. I just wanted to vent my frustration and say it is better to have painted in a mediocre fashion then not at all.
