Two Paths

It seems to me that there are two paths that a professional artist travels.

1. The Art Path
Where you follow intuition to manifest latent truths
Where you clear space for discovery
Where you can decide what to do and how long to do it
Where you ask yourself what you value

2. The Career Path
Where you proactively connect your creations with people/communities
Where you are told what others find meaningful in your work
Where you work within the timelines of others
Where you ask others what they value

I find that when I feel stuck, I generally have been neglecting one of these paths. I’m finding that dancing between them feels the most comfortable and satisfying. I also find myself translating these two paths as Private Practice (art) in a Community Context (career).
