I admire artists who have the talent and skills to sketch, paint, and draw. I don’t have the ability to do any of those things. For me, it’s a pleasure to view the creations of others.
And to think of an artist being told, in some form or another, that their art isn’t valuable…well that pisses me off. And that’s what happened to my friend, Melissa.
Please, jump on over to Melissa’s blog for me and check out her incredible image of a face with its watching, caring, deep set eyes, and let her know how valuable her art is. I can’t stand seeing someone put down when sharing their expressions with the world.
Here’s a link to the painting (scroll down to the end of the post)
I pounded sand looking for a hole to drive deep enough to care about. Then, I stopped.
I searched the web for a place to drop links. Turns out there isn’t a place to do so. It seems to me people create online communities with rules that often include an agenda, which only help the person who created the community. Fuck that. I even searched on Facebook for a place to drop my links from WordPress. Nope. Not gonna happen. Well it can- sorta. For example, I spammed Donald Trumps facebook page with my link to my short story on amazon. His team let is stay. But for the majority, you can’t just stumble upon a facebook page and drop your link hoping for feedback, views, or..well anything.
I started a group on facebook today. It’s purpose is to allow creative works to be shown and supported. Drop a link whenever you want. I don’t care if it’s a link directly to your sales page on amazon. Do it. I dare you. I double dog dare you. I hope you gain sales.
