The reality is that you are probably not going to get picked. The dream of an artist being plucked from obscurity is so intoxicating… being discovered by the next big gallery or being the next YouTube viral sensation. It’s a version of waiting and hoping, but it’s not a plan.
But what’s exciting about this is when you realise that your future is mostly under your own control. Step by tiny step the journey begins. Bit by bit the mountain is moved. The dream becomes a vision. The vision a goal. The goal a series of manageable steps. My dream was to become a full time artist. It took decades. Hour by hour, week by week. Tiny steps. Always to the goal. .
