It is pure impertinence to tell others what God's will for their life is. Frankly, it's between you and God. Counsel is good, but only if it's done with the utmost respect. And that's my little sermonette for the day.
In no other area of life does a person need firm resolve as much as they do if they're an artist. There are subliminal messages that we receive on a continuous basis that art needs to remain in the shadows of life and is something you do only as a hobby or when everything else is done. This is not true and all artists need to hear this on a regular basis.
And if you're creating your artwork in total isolation, the chances of you continuing on are very slim. The internal critic will eat you alive. So to bring your dreams forward also means to surround yourself with encouraging art friends who will help you progress. Just remember that if you don't do what you're wired to do, no one else will be able to fill that gap. Each of us has their own artistic fingerprint that no one else has.
Keep that in mind when you feel like hanging it all up and moving on to something else. A true artist will never be satisfied until they are actually creating art. And there you have it...just a few more things to think about.
