No Instant Art Sucess

I am remembering a reality show from last year, about making an artist an art star.
I got to thinking. I wonder if the artist that was selcted, will proceed
to have a long art career?
With the number of artists in the mix, the mission is to be able to go the distance. The real thing about being an artist is, there ain't no instant art careers. Success is something that has to go the distance.

Technology is encroaching on the visiual arts. The fast pace of life is even faster because of all of the screentime people are involved in.
People don't take the time to look at works of arts the way they used to.
This is my observation. People rush around like crazy.
I have had artists mention that they have been in homes, where there
were flatscreen television sets on every wall.
So paintings do not get much space in these situations.
There's a lot of competition for people's attention these days.
I think the visual arts will have a difficult time in th future.

Any Sae Is a Good Sale.

I recently closed on a couple of sales. In this economic climate, any sale is a good sale.
I sold the art to a museum. This transaction took six months.
Patience rules.
