Well received some good news today.
Another gallery in London has approached me about exhibiting my paintings in their Gallery.
Several months ago, another gallery in London accepted me to exhibit in their Gallery on the Banks of the River Thames, but THEY WANTED £500/$1000 per week from me to pay for it. Needless to say i had to refrain.
I have a nasty feeling that this is going to happen again.
Which brings me to the point of 'struggling artists'.
We all have the notion of struggling/starving artists, both in the present as well as the Masters of the Past.
But if you think about it, NONE of them were actually struggling as such. The majority came from very wealthy backgrounds who were helped by their families or had patrons.
So just like then, today you have to be wealthy to be able to actually achieve fame. Well that's my theory anyway.
I come from a fairly poor background, and as my husband is disabled, money is still a problem for me.
So i have now given up on the notion of every having my work displayed in the Tate Modern (again on the banks of the River Thames LOL).
C'est la vie my friends.
