My friend gave me a fabulous compliment comparing the video to my art. She said:
I thanked her. Her compliment was a wonderful gift to me this Christmas.
You see, compliments keep me painting when I don't feel like it. I run my own business designing, manufacturing, marketing, and selling my thoughts without receiving a steady income for my completed work like most folks. I pay up front to create and display my art in galleries and shows. It's a high risk career, especially introducing a new series like this one, Imaginary Friends, to earn the respect of an audience.
An artistic career is a true calling of the muse. In terms of business, I believe artists are "Game Changers" or "Change Agents". They take risks and start trends. A compliment, next to a purchase, is golden to an artist.
Back to my friend... I indicated I would be posting new art today. Upon looking through my paintings, I came across "Kirby" and decided my friend was absolutely on the button with her comment. Talk about happenstance! Kirby reminds me of those goofy birds in the video too.
