It would seem that everything I do, I do firstly for myself and my pen pals. And commonly it’s true. Making letters and photos of them is the aesthetic space of my soul. I love when it's beautiful, tidy, interesting, cute .. but that's not all. It is important for me to make what others will like. My entire life is connected with art, and this forms certain needs - the needs for viewers and the audience's approval of the results of my work. Such a bitter truth.
As I receive less feedback on my work, I have less motivation to do anything. Letters are lying without answers for months and accumulate like a snowball. It‘s oppressive. There are quite a lot of pressing factors in my life these days, and creativity should become a way to release emotions - not to become yet another reason to close myself off.
I think this problem has affected not only me. Similar thoughts are read between the lines of many illustrators, photographers, handmade craftsmen, bloggers of aesthetic directions. We are lost. Do we need our viewers? Maybe something went wrong, maybe you are busy or have lost interest? How to move on? Where to find strength?
I want to say that it is very important to support each other. In the age of monopolization, it is difficult for small people to break through, but it is possible. It's quite easy to help. Just give a minute, press the heart or make a repost, leave a review for the received order or free material.
There are those who have stayed with me for a long time, and I remember many accounts who supported me and participated in giveaways and SFS. I want to tell them many thanks for the attention they give me.
And thank you, for reading this text.
