Art in process

The process of becoming a painter, a real artist is such an amazing experience. I thought, It would be faster and easier. I was born with a talent(or I would like to think so) but It was never nurture on me. When my parents asked what I would, I like to be, I said, I would love to be an artist and paint wonderful inspiring things. They were not so excited as myself, instead , they told me that artists usually are poor and that they wouldn't like to see me suffering.

They didn't believe on me on what I felt I was for many years, so I forgot my dream and tried to be many things, no wonder nothing really turned successful. I studied to be an English teacher, and I ended up teaching EFL to children in a private school. I loved teaching but deep on me, I always felt something was wrong. I felt this anger inside, and people felt it too, this bitterness that comes out every pore.

Years passed by, got married, had a baby, moved to the other side of the ocean where I can not teach. I started to paint again but at home I only got comments like, "It's a nice hobby", "you can keep doing this when you find a real job", "is it that too complicated for you?". After so much struggle, I found my muse and inspiration to start and continue.

I took me so long to realize that if you denied what you really are inside, you could never be happy.

      thanks for your comment! Though it´s sometimes hard to follow your call. There is always people bringing you down and negative things to overcome but no one can take the joy of doing what you really enjoy.

      I agree - glad you are following your bliss now :) I can relate to your hub because I denied my real calling for a long time too (writer/designer)
