Or, somewhat, false validation from social media.
It is real, and I loathe indicating this, that the more followers you have, the extra probably I am to pay attention to you and your art simply because others have offered you their thumbs up at some level.
And your social feed is extra possible to retain my interest if it emphasizes artwork as the heart of your everyday living. Art, artwork, and extra artwork. That is what I want to see from an artist who seeks reflection and important attention.
Even so, we have to admit that there is a bogus feeling of validation from social media. I imagine Sara Schroeder felt that when she talked about wanting to be “more than an Instagram artist.” She grew her Instagram adhering to rapidly and had to get a step (or two) again to contemplate what she seriously preferred from her art. Pay attention to my conversation with her in episode 119.
Whilst it feels very good to get people followers, likes, feedback, and shares on social media, at some place you have to marvel what they all indicate.
Who is carrying out the next, liking, commenting, and sharing? How are those interactions aiding you in the very long operate? What takes place when you never get ample likes or reviews?
This begs the query: Who are you in search of validation from?
