Hello there, those of you who still linger around dA, old guard and fresh blood.

I've just realized a few things. I'm here amolst every day [apart from when I'm taking a bigger break from online presence]. Every single day - and I work online quite a lot, so my firefox is on frequently - I open my dA page, I go throung watch, I admire works from groups and artist I follow. And... I do nothing. I don't comment, don't fav, I'm just an idle stalker. I rarely submit anything too. But I'm here almost EVERY SINGLE DAY...
I think that's mostly because it's now a bit 'work' thing. Like other social media - because dA is just that, a fancy and with a brilliant history and tradition, but a social media page - it's the inner pressure of 'show your stuff to the world, show your work, make your mark, get some exposure and so on and so on. I'm struggling with that a lot. I'm not made for this. I have the internal 'blah' on every thought of it. I can create, I can draw and paint, I can take photos and write descriptions [tho I don't like writing those too]. But where I ultimately fail is just at the gate of social media sharing. I truly, deeply suck with that, pardon my French. And my dA presence has been a victim of that whole situation.

So for those of you, who don't know - because to my amazemet and deep gratitude, there are still people who add me to their watch here - I run a one-person crftsy-artsy-thingy called WolfPath Studio. I've even made myself [yup, from skratches, which has drained the life from me and now I have to rebuild it a bit, cause it loads for ages] a page:
For a bit over 2 years I have an Etsy shop, which has have its better and not-so-good times [like now]. And over those two years I've ended up making living almost only on my that.…
It's sometimes an astonishing and amazing thing. Very often it's difficult. Many times it's frustrating. And it's scary, pure and simple: scary like hell. I'm doing it all on my own, no safety net, no air bag of savings 'if something goes wrong', many doubts on 'is this actually can be a way of living instead of a boring 8h office job or something other that won't involve creating?'. Well, there's no simple answer I guess. Much depends on luck. Much depends on hard work on daily basis. Much depends on the attitude, which is my weak spot, as I'm quite mooody, especialy after a long, damp winter, longing the damn wet snow to stop fooling around and to kick of with my bicycle rides. Also I've made some quite unfortunate choises throughout last year on where to put my afforts and that has bite me right in the ass in the 2017 Christmas season, which was very, very dissapointing for me as a seller. I've ponder on the reasons and I believe at least I got to the right conclusions. But all of this makes creating art less important. It pushes it from the central place of my life, of my every day, which begin to be a series of putting down little fires that burst here and there. Mostly being my own fault. So many ideas, so hardly and so stresfully smashed into the wall of reality.

But. But I will try to put more of those art-related ideas in life somehow. I'll work harder and smarter. I'll give it my really best. I'm giving myself time to the end of this year to see if WolfPath Studio can be my permanent way to make living. Or should it be gently put down. It's sad to even consider this, but I think it also can bo motivating. And will push me to focus on one thing instead of the miriades of little fascinations I always have.

So that's what I wanted to share with you, guys and gals. I didn't planned to be writing anything today, but it has striken me how silent I have been here. 13 years on dA - would be a shame to just fade to black.

Would you like to see a short animation on one of my recent practice-paintings? :) Here's the progress photo on the 'Deluge' watercolour piece:

Oh and I've just noted: I have 298 sales in my Etsy shop. If anyone would like to be the 300th one, I'll add something really cool as a kiriban ;] In dA's a-bit-forgotten-spirit of kiribans :la:

Thank you so much for reading and watching :heart: You're awesome, people of dA, thank you for staying around!
