Undiscovered

Simple question: Can you be happy if your art is never discovered? Is your art significant if nobody sees it? Is it worth it to do all of this just for yourself?

I'm going to be a little controversial and say, no. It's not really worth it to put all the effort it takes to make great art if it is never going to go beyond yourself. Sure it can be fun, therapeutic, and satisfying. But art isn't meant to be made in a vacuum. It is meant to be shared and enjoyed by others.

So, set your mind to the fact that your art isn't finished until it has had an audience. So, pony up, dig in, become your own greatest marketing agent. Your art deserves to be finished.
