Sticky Thoughts

A girl wakes up after long, productive, night, older kid already watching TV, younger one still sleeping in his bed.

She reaches kitchen just to see her everyday routine is stil there, washing dishes, cleaning the floor, making a breakfast, after that she can finally sit down with a cup of coffee and starts to think how she would fill up her day, to not be emotionaly, creatively empty. She knows, she has no time, two kids are demanding their space, attention, basic needs.... But even despite that something goes wrong in her head...

She starts to question herself:

Is this journey of art worth it?

What if I am just daydreamer and never make living from it?

What if I am not imaginative enough?

Why others got it while me is still sitting here, feeling that I do not moving forward, increasing my skills, not even getting noticed...?

Is my art good enough? What a great art means?

If I had to apply for ordinary job, just for financies, in future it will be the start of my death!

This sticky thoughts are casting on her head and she is powerless, it is like when you accidentally soak your fingers into the honey and cannot get rid of that stickiness, only by washing them thoroughly.

She raises her eyes hopelessly to the ceiling trying to get that ideas down, wash it... but there are emerging new one every time, and when she finds a answer to one, another question is there, ready to makes her disbelieve in what her heart is loving.

She cannot really imagine, what other she should do, if not art, any kind of art...

And then her mood changes, after she ended the cup of coffee, and she is ready to every situation and problem that life brings...Feels strong.

But that doubts are not gone, they are just awaiting for her weak time. To appear. Maybe they are back in an hour, or next morning, but surely they are gonna get back.

This my artwork is not very fresh, but I panted it in 2020, it is done by aquarelle and ink.

Hope I joined in time, and now I have time to read all the entry posts of other artists. :)

I live in Slovakia, pretty old models of family are in power here, but, also prices and economics are adapting to like very west countries, but average salaries are not . :D That story was reflexion on me, pushed into produce income to our family, but having problem with common jobs. I love my children, and still want to raise them and take care of them, but on the other side I am forced to build my income, and it is uncertain journey, and that brings pressure and stress into my beeing. Thanks for your comment, best wishes:)

I would buy those too if i were single ;;-;; but gosh i need to get my hands on that block one day. The ones i use are the dollar for 2 kinds bought in kid's school supplies shop and they really suck but at least they're usable in a way and the fact that it's good enough for practice. I'm taking note of the watercolor brand ;;-;; if i remember correctly, here that costs around 15? Usd?

This set of coulours, there are 36 half pans, cost approximately 160 €, yeah, awfully cost like I said :D But my reommendation for beginners are White Night by Nevskaya Palitra (not sure if wrote it correctly) and also Cotman from Winsor&Newton. Pretty afordable and great quality :)

I'm from the Philippines and i found them but they cost around 20-30 usd here so i don't think i can afford it right now ;;-;; maybe when i get a job again i did find some good looking china brands that look like they have really good pigmentation. I think I'll stick to charcoal and ink for now

Well, I love art supplies from China too, I prefer to use cheap ones mostly, and then I am surprised of their quality :) I only demand the quality for watercolours, ink and colored pencils, thats also mediums which lasts for long time, not like acrylics, oils and stuff. Hope you will get your fingers on something you like soon !:)

I have a few high quality ones which are mostly my charcoals and inks. I draw with those more these days, honestly and soon I'll get a new set for my birthday >w< i don't use pencil colors that much because too many shading layers, same with oil and acrylic, those will burn a hole into my wallet πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ thank you, i also hope so

Oh yeah, i used to draw w Cpencils, but I spent like min. 20hrs on one piece:D... so yeah, Watercolors are better choice for me :D and I love that results, half- unpredictable, half- regulated. :) Charcoals are great, also time-saving and ink is pure love:) I once readed somewhere:D ,,lead your children to do arts and they will never ever get money for drugs.,, and itΒ΄s so true:D

Lol we have the same experience except for the watercolor part. That takes me like a whole day to finish if i use watercolor but yeah. No drugs here if you know how to draw, you'll be more stressed out on how to get money for art stuff than anything πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

I really admire your artworks.. I dunno with other entry but for me it standouts..My brother is also an artist,so kinda used in seing and giving comments to art since he was always asking for my opinion if his work is good enough though im not an artist.haha..Goodluck to your competition..

That doubts, it is something I see in every artist, that is the only thing that calms me down honetsly:D, Artist do their art to touch the heart and feeling of other people imo, and if there is no feedback they feel worthless. But if passion about creating is stronger than doubts, than everything is all right and after time of emptyness there comes season of pure joy and excitement. I know it is so in everyday life, but artist seems more concerned about this. Thank you about your support and I just want to tell you that you do not have to be artist to enjoy art :) Like art can speak to you and you do not know why exactly! That is amazing! :)
